Focus: It can be common for guitar players to take an exaggerated stance on technique. Some seem allergic to anything perceived as overly technical, and shun learning extended techniques. Others make virtuosity the core aspect of their playing, but overlook writing and forming a musical voice. Both extremes are creatively limiting.
