wow, thanks everybody! great tips. muris, could you maybe suggest an alternate picking practice routine from different lessons at gmc that might help? maybe also maybe create a lesson about the 'different number of notes on every string' idea?

You need to get rid of that negative view, see yourself succeeding, and it will happen. Here is an inspirational video.

@misterj:
I recommend putting your speed quest on hold for a while, and concentrate on finger dexterity, finger independence and minimal movement exercises, as well as synchronization exercises.
If you do that for a while, I bet you'll be able to break your speed barrier. smile.gif

thanks!! just to clarify, what would be application of "concentrating on finger dexterity", and what exactly are "minimal movement exercises?"

I no expert on this matter, but what i usually do is go up beyond what i want and then back down.. If youre stuck at 85 then go to 100 and keep trying that then go back down to around 90, it should seem easier

I saw a vid with Shawn Lane where he said he did it that way, so I think this is a good advise! smile.gif

Absolutely!
Try as many lessons as possible,
Roo's lessons are extremely great for picking by the way.

And I will do my best to make one lesson

No worries,help is always appreciated! smile.gif

Ok,so here's what I think of this subject.
You say per example "I can play 6 notes per beat at 140bmp".
What does it tell us?
Not too much I'm afraid.
Because there are some licks made of 16th at 100bpm
and they are much harder to play comparing with some
licks made of 16th triplets at 140bpm.
Some licks just feel more natural to play
while some others,even slower,are much much harder.
Odd fingering,uncomfortable picking pattern or whatever.

And this conclusion leads us to only one solution,
practice as much different things as possible,
specially picking stuff cause you pointed on picking.
BPM is only a tool to explain which tempo you are using,
but what are you playing at that tempo is much more important imho. smile.gif


I absolutely agree... when I start studying some Dream Theater songs I learnt that sometimes riffs in a slow tempo are too much difficult than 16th triplets at 140 biggrin.gif

Thanks for your advices Muris wink.gif
