18 Practise for speed
A Practise slowly
We mean it! Whether you’re a budding shredder or just trying to get a new song up to tempo, slow practise is the key to building up your playing speed.
Short phrases are easier to remember, practise and ultimately get up to speed. Even the briefest of licks can be broken down and practised note by note.
CIdentify tricky points
It could be a position shift, a stretch or just a technique you struggle with. Isolate tricky points and repeat the bits that challenge you the most.
