HI, I'm determined to learn cliffs of dover on guitar however I am having a lot of dificulty due to my hands not quite moving fast enough. Could anyone tell me any ways to improve both my fretboard and picking speed? How long should I be practicing each technique?

Thanks in advance

Try to find songs that are at the top or a bit above your ability and play along with those,
I started off with songs like reckless life and then dr. feelgood style.
Whole kill 'em all is a nice one to practice and then the master of puppets album too.
thats how i practiced it.

Play with a metronome. Seriously. Best thing you can do.

The best way is this:

1- learn the lick you're having trouble with at a speed that you are completely comfortable with.
2- subtract 20 bpm.
3- play on metronome 5 times in a row perfectly. If you mess up, start over.
4- add 1 bpm.
5- repeat steps 3 and 4 until you can play it faster than it's meant to be played.


practice again the next day until you got it perfectly!

I swear this actually works.

This is a great way to learn difficult runs. It make "impossible" licks much more approachable.

It's impossible to use a metronome for the introduction though, it's in free time.
Isn't it a pity?
Now, isn't it a shame?
