A. Build speed and precision with any technique
Find an exercise or a lick that you want to master. Then follow the steps below.
1. Find out how fast you are
What's the highest level at which you can play the lick or exercise without straining your arm or hand? Figure it out and write it down on your tracking sheet
2. Create your inlet
Set the metronome at a level 5-10 levels below your max speed
3. Decide how many reps
Decide on a specific number of repetitions you'll do before you move on to the next level.
4. Practice and move to the top
Practice the lick or exercise at the first speed level. Then, when you've done all the repetitions, move the metronome up one notch. The difference in speed should be almost unnoticeable to you. Then continue until you reach your maximum speed level.
5. Increase the power
If you do not surpass your previous speed level, you should 1. Go back
even further on the metronome and start slower or 2. Increase the number
of repetitions you do on each level. If you hit a plateau in your
development, try doubling the numbers.
