I've been played guitar for 4years, but quit for one year. Now I want to play guitar again.

I can play 200BPM 8 note downpicking before, and now I am practicing downpicking again, and have process for already 1year.

Here is my question, some times I can play 180BPM 8 note, but some times, I can't even maintain 160, both situation are after my routine 10min warm up. What's the problem, and how can I solve it.

Perhaps a stupid question as you've been playing for a long time, but are you focused on relaxing and not being tense when playing?

Some days you'll play faster than others. There's nothing strange about that. The better you get, the easier those speeds will be.

Make sure your hand is relaxed.
