man that youtube video has got me in laughing my ass off!

thx for the lesson kris, but here's a question, I know it's variable but where in your opinion should good players be at for metronome speeds when running through 1/4, 1/8, triplets, 1/16th notes.
I have no ambition for being a shredder, but would like some ideas on one should be for some of these faster solos by popular rock bands.

Hmm well the best answer I can give to that is to try to pick a few songs which are good examples of the music you want to play. See if you are capable of playing the standard time values with these songs. That should be a guideline.

Of course, if you want to play blues, sixteenth note triplets wight not be the highest priority. blink.gif

A small question Kristofer,

When you're playing sixteenth notes triplets, at 100 bpm for example, do you "impose on your hands" to play it with strict alternate picking, or do you put some 'hammers on' in it ?

This question because I always force myself with playing all these stuff with strict alternate picking but I ask myself if it's really necessary. When shredding, most people use 'hammers on' and 'pulls off'. In fact, it really gives a better effect than picking separatly all the notes, a new 'color' coming out from each finger.

I agree that strict alternate picking is necessary when learning pure technic things (and it's a technic), but I never forget that it must also sound good.

So.. I'ld like to know what do you think about it.

Thx, Flo

I agree completely with this - hopefully it answers your question
