Good job!!!!
The only thing is you are doing it way too fast! Slower you do this exercise better results you will get! I would suggest to go down to 80 BPM and really play it slow so every note is there and you have a full control!

I did it at 120 BPM. 80 felt a bit too slow for me rolleyes.gif

If it still sounds like crap I will do it at 80 BPM biggrin.gif

You are doing very well! Don't take me wrong I am suggesting to do it slow because you will get better results! You will see a huge difference after one week practicing it at 80 BPM!
This is a mechanical exercise and I would like you to add it to your warming up routine!

Hi How is it going?
I have a new assignment for you! This one will help you with stretching and will develop strength in your fingers!
Practice it at a slow tempo using a metronome! You don't need to bring it up to speed just make sure you are having a full control over your hands!

It is very hard, hahaha. I hate admitting it, but it is good that I am struggling. Up until this exercise, the only thing I have actually had trouble with was speed and timing. It is nice to know that something else out there is a challenge.
