I just isolated the problem and worked on it very slowly. I just went from the hight E to the B string, back and forth, very slowly, quarter notes at 80bpm, for about 7 to 8 minutes straight. I then began adding strings gradually, but kept the tempo the same, again going from high to low, also for 7 to 8 minutes straight. Once I was comfortable going all the way up the fretboard I began gradually increasing the speed. If you think this is monotonous and boring, it is looolRemember, if you can't do it good slow, you can't do it good fast. The point of doing this exercise really slow is to force you to focus on efficiency and accuracy. Keep a log of your progress, it really helps. And to keep yourself from getting discouraged, don't look at the day to day progress to much, getting good at this takes time, in fact I'm still working on it To paraphrase Rob Chappers, speed is a product of efficiency, not outright speed. I hope that makes sense. -------------------- He who laughs last thinks slowest."That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence." - Christopher HitchensGear:Guitars: Uncle Rufus' Twanger ClassicAmps: Mississippi Boom BoxMojo: Hammer of Odin and a pair of Ox gonadsInspiration: Samuel Adams Boston LagerZero to Hero: 1,387/10,000

I suggest that you practice only left hand, the pattern you mentioned, with metronome slowly, then try to put it all together and see how it works...Generally, all problems are fixed with correct practicing over of period of time. --------------------
