Hello all,
Recently i've come to the conclusion that i need to focus on my picking technique and after doing research everyone says to start slow. My question is if i start a picking exercise at 60 and work up to 70 BPM one day what tempo should i start at the next day? Should i start at 70 or back it up a little? Thanks in advance.

You should try what I do. You go up 8bpm one day, then back down 4bpm the next. Then just keep repeating until you reach the speed you're happy with. Think it might of been from a book or something.

stop racing against the metronome
just do it faster when you are so in complete control of it, that you can talk or do something else while doing it perfectly at that tempo..
