wassapnin guys,
i tried the musicians forum a few days ago but didnt get much help, so im hoping someone in here can sort me out.
for the last 4-5 weeks ive been stuck at 95 bpms at 16notes and just cant break it. i can alt pick comfortably at 110 and could probably push it more if i wanted, but i just cant get my fretting hand going. ive slowed every thing right down to 40bpms and worked on keeping my hand relaxed close to the strings, i usually play the 1234 pattern, scales and licks ive stolen from paul gilbert i usually do this for 30 mins a day but just cant break it.
I suopose the main question is is this normal, and what next do i
a) continue as im doing
b) insert your suggestion here

id also like to know how long iits taken you to get to your current speed and what your routine was .

cheers all

stay at 95 till its comfortable, then go to 96. Play till its comfortable, then 97, 98, etc...

prehaps your tensing, tension will only slow you down

I'm thinking probably the technique thread.
