In some cases, I have learnt to neglect picking when I play legato. It's really hard to explain but.. I have developed this style from tying to learn Joe Satriani's music by ear.. Basically, when he plays those blues runs down the scale those runs contain lots of legato and I can mimic that exact same sound except for the fact that I dont pick those notes when playing down even though they sound very nice and clear. Now when I actually think about it and try to pick along with those notes, I realized that my left hand is much faster than my picking hand only in those certain cases. I can't keep up with the picking.

However.. my picking hand is much faster than my left hand when it comes to trying to shred:p my left hand can barely keep up :/...

How do I fix this problem guys??? (both, actually.. But mainly the legato prob.) It's really bothering me and I've been trying to work on it with no success.. Its like it grew on me after two years of doing it over and over:/.

You know the answer already mate. Slow down untill both your hands are coordinated and then work your way upper on the bpms.

That's the only advice you can get! There are a lot of topics with this problem in the forum and the answer is always the same: slow down - speedpicking ain't simple as it looks.
