Yes smile.gif yes smile.gif yes smile.gif i

the mechanical part of course - it functions on the same principles, the only difference consisting in the fact that being able to increase speed will take your playing abillities to the next level and increasing weight/ number of reps will take your body to another level smile.gif

Now the question is: Are you consciously aware of your progress? Do you ever write down the speeds you managed to achieve and the ease of execution? What's your approach? smile.gif

I never write down or track the speed. I probably should but it's not all that important to me. Accuracy and correct technique is. Speed will come with time.
Similar to lifting, correct form/ technique will eventually make you lift heavier weights while lowering the risk of injury.

Tracking the increase of speed and ease of execution should be the result of developing an accurate and correct technique, as I see it. i tried to write things down a few years ago, but I wasn't being consistent with this thing so, I eventually gave it up. i was doing it though in the gym, so this is why I figured out it would also be good with the axe tongue.gif

It's a great topic, and great comparison! smile.gif

When I went to the gym, the first thing I got is a routine, made from a local trainer. This is important with guitar practice. Someone with more experience must provide a routine based on a level.

I can definitely see an increase in progress, but I never track it, excluding all my old recordings.
