TO STEVE K. - Request for level 2 speed and agility program

Recommended Posts

Hello Steve,

 

I would like to request if you could do a level 2 program for the speed and agility exercises. It is one of the most helpful things for my playing, and I feel many will benefit off it as well.

I start every practice day off with it as part of my routine! Maybe we can start a suggestion thread for the next one ? I realize it's a big time investment, but if you ever have one down the pipeline...I will DEFINITELY be on it! 

Blessings,


Dan

My fingers and brain are stuck at 86bpm 16th notes

But I wish Steve would make a Blues one

Start slow and clean, build up speed as you go.... regularity is key! :) I also found using a very thick pick has aided me significantly in reducing tension in my right hand, which means more SPEED :) ! I used a V-Pick dimension jr...these picks are 4mm, but any REALLY thick pick should be fine for this purpose! also pay attention to pick angle and keep it consistent.  even if you don't like the tone or feel of these picks...I found it as a great practice aid but go back to other picks for regular playing, and have found the looseness of my right hand transfer over to other plectrums! good luck and blessings your way brother!

Dan,

Ha!  I'll put that on my list of things to get to.

I'm so glad it's been helpful for you.

Keep it up.  It's a great way to keep your fingers fresh and ready to create. - Steve

@DANIELGUITAR88Man... if you can play 16th notes @ 120bpm actually  picking the strings you are WAY faster than most accomplished players! Most would be playing a combination of picked notes, hammer-on's and pull off's to get anywhere past that speed as in Level 3 of the SA course. (I've been playing a while and struggle at that speed)
