Ultimate Guide to Practicing Efficiently

intro & directions

7 elements of speed

1. one hand movement – fast twitch muscle training

2. one hand efficiency – very small movements in either hand

3. 2-hand synchronization – 3 elements: pick, fretted note, note release at perfect time – hear it & feel it

4. string control – muting of other strings with picking hand palm & thumb as well as fretting hand

5. consistency – accuracy of the item played over a set amount of time (ex: 30 secs, 60 secs, etc.)

6. integration – ability to switch between item and any other item seamlessly

7. performance – get it right first try (practice by standing up, playing it once, then take hands away, then repeat)
