Thread Name: How can they play that fast?
Subject: How can they play that fast?
I've been working on the song Beaumont Rag since I heard a Doc Watson recording and I really thought I was getting somewhere. This week I heard another recording (live) of Doc playing the same song, and I couldn't believe how fast he did it. So here's my question.

Can you learn to play fast or is it just talent alone?

Are there any tricks to playing fast that I'm just not aware of yet?

I've always gotten such great tech help from Mudcat, so I hope somebody has a few answers.
