Hey,

I've just joined guitarmasterclass and I'm slowly working up my playing speed and accuracy. I can do vertical scale runs (3 notes per string type things) reasonbly quickly and accuratly now, but I'm having trouble with string skipping and although I can pick quickly with my right hand and fret the notes quickly with my left hand, the two often go out of synch and it sounds very messy,

Is there some good excersises to work on synchronizing my two hands and to improve my string skipping?

The usual answer to this kind of question is Metronome practice. Start slowly and build your speed with any technique you find hard.

Pavel has a string skipping lesson you could use.

I am practicing with a metronome already, usually at 60-80bpm depending on the excersise.

Is it important to play with metronome when playing fast too?

It certainly helps, it build accuracy and Synchronization.

Also try to play licks that involve some more movement than usuall, and play them slowly with a metronome first, and speed them up, i find that this helps to get the right hand and left hand working well together, this is a lick i played to keep up my accuracy.

|-5-2----2----------------------------------
|------5----5-2-----2----------------------
|-----------------5------5-2-----2--------
|------------------------------5-----5-2---

Basic pattern, but this specific lick helped me build Accuracy, since you switch between strings often, it may not help you though, just find out wha works best for you smile.gif

Thanks a lot,

I'll add it to my practicing routine. I'm also looking at pavels hand control excersise, I think I'll play through it several times a day along with the guitar pro tab, hopefully it'll help me get what I'm after.
