Hey Guys I tried to play the Fade to Black Solo yesterday but i'm too slow now I want you to tell me some exercises for becoming a faster guitar player :-) thx
uhhh....finger exercises helped me a lot
do chromatic scales all over the neck with a metronome. this helped me.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6490975382658539247&q=john+petrucci&hl=en
pretty cool video thx :-)
Here's a link with some good lessons to start to shred based on th Hammett style:
just play your scales to a metronome, i increase the tempo every couple of days or so in my practise regime. It helps to completely nail a certain tempo/picking pattern before moving on...
Synchronize your hands. To do this, practice strict alternate picking exercises. This will work out the kinks.
aren'T there any more videos?
