Hi Gabriel!

What's your fingering on the last descending part of this solo (Power Metal Soloing Part1)? I'm asking this coz' that's where my fingers got screwed up...

and can you recommend lessons or exercises to speed up my fingers? coz' right now I'm stuck at 70-75BPM with this solo...

Best Regards,
Merkinball

Hi mate! You can check the video part 5 to check if you are using the same fingers than me in that section. I play the part slowly there and the last camera angle shows my left hand.

Regarding speed.. I think that you could develop your alternate picking technique with power metal soloing lessons 1 and 2. If you want to add more exercises I can recommend this clinic.

no... I don't use the 4 fingers in every position... I do a slide with finger 1 to move the position so the fingering would be (4 3 1 1 4 2 1 1). Does it make sense?
