Many guitarists are in such a rush to get to the flashy, exciting aspects of guitar playing, like two-handed tapping or two-octave sweep arpeggios, that they overlook the basic skills these more advanced techniques build from.
The problem, of course, is that without a solid foundation of basic guitar skills it's difficult to progress to more advanced techniques and maintain accuracy. The end result is almost always a sloppy player. To avoid this situation it's important to pay attention to the fundamental aspects of guitar, especially if you're just starting out, as it's much harder to correct a bad habit once it's been ingrained over a period of time.
