Yes, I am practicing and I want to improve my hand sync and my timing.

I record and then listen to my playing:

I compare my playing to the click by looking in reaper to see if I am playing 100% on time, and I see that in some parts I am playing in front of the beat.
This is the reaper screenshot from this recording

What do you think of my playing?



Cool! I think this is better - I cannot hear any missed notes or serious hand sync issues.

About timing - bear in mind that we all fluctuate up and down in tempo, since we are humans. The more we practice the more we can tame the beast, but it never gets perfect.

Your playing here moves back and forth timing wise a little bit - but it only really gets very obvious at 00:27-00:28 where I think you abruptly slow down to get back on time.

Keep up the hard work, you are doing excellent progress! 👌

Still working hard on my timing and hand sync,
Let me know what you think

Alternate Picking by Muris - 100 BPM, that means full speed.

I attached the Reaper screenshot, and from what I see there I am playing on time most of the time, with a few exceptions where it's not perfect.

Even though you can see in the screenshot of the Reaper written 60 BPM, I used the slow backing track and than I gradually increased the speed until I reached 100 and a little above.

In the mp3 attached I play at 100 BPM.

Hi Victor! Nice to see that you are playing this one at 100 BPM. At this tempo, I notice that the hand sync issues appear but these are not very dramatic. You are getting close mate. The hand sync issues give timing issues, but you'll be able to fix this soon if you continue practicing.

You are definitely on the right track! smile.gif

G Major Scale played at different speeds:
Exercise inspired by:
Hand Synch - Ben Higgins

Let me know what you think!

I think my hand synch is good until 100BPM or 120BPM. (From here the the hand synch issues are starting)
The Speed at 140BPM was impossible for me to even try (before)
But now I can try it.
At 140BPM the last measure is the one that gets my hand out of synch, from what I can hear.

I try to:

- Record
- Listen to my playing
- Analyze my playing

Because if I can't hear my mistakes, I cannot improve, that's why I wrote what I think.

It's very important for me as an instructor to actually see the student play so that I can diagnose any problems with technique that can't be detected by just listening. Can you do a quick cell phone video of you playing these? Any type of video will do as long as I can see both of your hands?

Here is the Video



Playing at 75, 90, and 105.

I didn't make it to 140 since it's harder on video.

But if this is ok I will try to push the speed for the next time.

This was shot in one video from beginning to end.

Hi Victor, I think that this is sounding good at this tempos. Your hands could be a bit more relaxed, and your right hand could move a bit less when crossing strings (mostly at 105 bpm), but this will be fixed with more time of practice, and focusing on it.

The key to be able to play this at faster tempos is to work on smaller blocks. If you start feeling uncomfortable at 110 or 115, work on the first part as a loop (2 strings), then add a 3rd string and so...

You are doing well!! It looks like your progress in bootcamp is carrying over to other things which is great! As gabe says, your hands could be a pinch looser. Also, your pick hand is still waggin a bit further than it needs to after each strike. I do notice you fret hand is staying closer to the strings that previously which is a great thing to see. Maybe a bit harder mute on the lower strings to give it a more aggressive chunkyness on the way up?
