What if there are universal principles that can be applied irrespective of what you do? What if frameworks don’t actually work? Join the metalhead CEO and learn interesting things about music, Agile and life in general.

  1. 1. @Dimitar_HK www.kanbanize.com Business Agility Through The Eyes of a Metalhead CEO Dimitar Karaivanov - CEO Kanbanize
  2. 2. Marty Friedman
  3. 3. One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of guitar hero types have a lot of people copying them. But copying others is not necessarily the best thing. The only way to really become as good as someone, is understand there is no easy way.  The guys that come closest to me are the ones that play in my band and have dissected those songs to a professional level. It’s a non-mechanical approach.
  4. 4.  People want warm-up exercises and shortcuts… there aren’t any! Get out there and play in bands to anyone you can. That’s how you find out how to play well. In your bedroom, you won’t have the right stimulus to play for real and avoid f*ck-ups.
  5. 5.  Here’s a great tip: one thing you want to avoid is playing fast unless it’s absolutely necessary. If it’s not needed, then playing fast totally sucks.  If you get a call from Elton John about doing some session, he’s not going to want to hear your 8- finger tapping arpeggios… he’ll send you straight out the door. Sir Paul McCartney won’t want your insane diminished sh*t either—you’ll get fired.
