So i got started on speedpicking since it seems like a good ingredience to the regular rock'n'roll manner.

I have worked my way up to ~100bpm 16th notes, while doing pretty simple patterns with no moving around, just trying to evelove some speed before getting on the more serious stuff..

And at this point it seems to me like its my left hand fingers that caps my maximum rather then my picking hand, did you experince the same while learning how to speedpick? And while you where learning it, what sorts of thing would you practice at my level?


Thankyou for all your great pentatonicbased blues/rock lessons btw, thats where i want to go smile.gif

Hi Salivtomte! That problem is common. You will have to tell your right hand to be patient and to wait your left hand. They have to be synchronized so you should continue practicing the exercises at that tempo. When your left hand feels comfortable you can add 3 bmp and so...
You could also practice some left hand legatos to improve your left hand speed. I used to do that when I was starting. wink.gif
