We know that some techniques are more difficult than others, but which techniques do you think take up the most energy ? What are the most physically demanding techniques that you use ?

I vote for fast down strokes and pick tapping (tapping with the edge of your pick like Satriani)

Down strokes:



Pick tapping (around 1:07)

i am going with Fast Down Strokes, it's probably the technique that generate more tension on my arms.

i am yet to manage play master at full speed without dying, last time i tried i was only able to play it at 195 bpm

Downstrokes for sure, I don't use pick-tapping.

195bpm is still good ! Try doing it in bursts at a higher speed (210 maybe) and come back down and see if you can do it a little longer at 200.

Downstrokes for me as well tongue.gif and I might add prolongued usage of AP at a steady tempo with unusual shapes.

For instance, I had a lot of fuss with the AP arpeggios which I played towards the ending part in Vivaldi's winter. I think it's a good AP exercise so... here it is for you to have fun with biggrin.gif

Also tapping AND string skipping, M. Romeo style can be very demanding!

Not sure, but I believe it's palm muted downstrokes, a lot of them, and lots of bare chords, and consecutive songs can also bring fatigue easily.
