Darius gave this advice in a REC take recently. It's not new but I think we could all do with reaffirming it once in a while. I know I shouldn't but I always try to rush things and find that elusive shortcut.

"..... It's as simple as it has to be repeated slowly but precisley until it starts to flow and you'll naturally feel the comfort of boosting the speed. Randomness is a very first enemy of progress. Doing things randomly extends the time of developement and very often it only makes player cover some of the mistakes within notes rather than fixing them.

To be able to play things like this, you need to be 200% sure of what's exactly happening on each note. You have to be able to copy the lick with exact same picking direction and left hand fingering layout but in a very slow tempo. If you go for slow tempo and you let your hands do things radnomly....because slow tempo allows you to, then you will not profit the time of practise you spend on it."

Well said! Without precision, speed quickly turns in to sloppy.
