  • Welcome to the Beginner Introduction to Speed Runs lesson

    The idea of this lesson is to collect a pack of licks, that usually work great for a very first attempts to speed playing. Of course in this lesson we'll workout these at medium tempo but proper practise amount can lead you to monsterous speed range in a reasonably short time. Medium speed will allow you to better dig into hand mechanics, responsible for smooth and relaxed motion. For detailed explanation, go to each part description (below each part's tab section)
