I'm already seeing improvement, so that's really fun. Then, I get over confident and frustrated. I have to remember that I'm still beginning and it's ok that I'm still having trouble with down and up picking.

I called the guy and left a message at the shop for him, so hopefully I can get in for an initial lesson soon! I mostly want him to make sure I'm holding it right and picking right and any other tips for getting better at doing the notes and the up picking (that one's really hard).
