  Title : Melodic Control  
         
  QUESTION:  
 
Hello Marty, I've been playing guitar for 3 years, and I've been trying to develop my improvisation and composition technique for a long time. You're my first idol for this, and I've been working on your Melodic Control video lately. My question is, how long did it take to develop such good control on the fretboard? For example, in which age you reached that level? You know where every note is, and you know how to arpeggiate or follow a chord in various ways, and you consciously think about those stuff while you're improvising. I'm really curious about this because I think this is one of the most important qualities that a guitar player should have. I'm really looking forward to watch you alive in May, in Istanbul Turkey. Maybe I can meet you in person in an event or something, that would be great. I hope you and your friends are well after the earthquake. Best wishes from Turkey. Atakan
 
     
  MARTY'S ANSWER:  
 
I get this all the time, "how long does it take..." The answer is: you get out exactly what you put in. You are as "good" as wherever you are on any given day. If I had filmed that video a week later than I did, it would have had a week`s more depth and "goodness" to it. Play as much as you can and you will see what I mean. Good luck and see you in Turkey!
