Ok probably a thread bout this already but i can not be bothered looking. SO ive gotten faster at playing but my picking isnt as fast as my fretting wants to go,if that makes sense any tips?
#2
just pick, don't use your fretting hand. Just rapidly pick an open string until you've gotten fast. or slow your fret hand down and work up to playing fast with both.
#3
If you can't arsed to search, why would you think we should take the effort and respond? Use the search you inconsiderate twit.
I have nothing to put in here.

Typical lazy musician, eh? Just use the search, it's not that hard. There are probably hundreds of threads on this exact subject. Please, no one respond and just let him look for himself.

Just keep practising. Besides, most of the time you can compensate for the fretting hand being faster by playing pull offs and hammer ons in the spaces inbetween strums.

Now why would I be a twat in your eyes?

Just to stop the fighting. And because you said, "No one give him advice." Then continue to argue.

The best way to fix that, is try to pick as fast as you can with your right hand without fretting anything. Try to keep it steady and even. Once you have that down, try to catch your left hand up with it (which should be easy since u said that one was faster anyways).

The thread creator is a twat for:
1. Not knowing how to type
2. For being an AC/DC fan (opinion of course)
3. Not using the search button

The other guy is a twat for:
1. Flaming someone who was looking for help instead of giving the answer
2. Coming back to the thread to argue

And to answer the question, pick one string to the speed of a metronome and gradually speed up.

on a more serious note,

you probably havent been practising enough, mind you there is no such thing as enough. So keep on practising.

Practising mindlessly is not good. Get a metronome, build up from very very very slow tempo's and slowly get faster.

Its a long road to speed playing. Theres no shortcuts or anything like that. Just keep at it and it will come.

Do some simple 1234 excercises and build up speed. Do them all over the neck
Eg: 1234, 2345, 3456 etc etc...

PRACTISE SLOWLY FIRST!!.. then build it up to speed. Speed is mostly about muscle memory, you need to have what you want to play fast well in your muscle memory before you can do it well enough.

good luck..

One more thing, about PICKING, not being a twat , is:
When you are doing the open string just picking, or just picking on one fret, or whatever, make sure you practice putting accentuation on one particular note, like one two three four, one two three four, etc. etc, so that you can:
A) Get it in time and
B) It sounds a bit better sometimes.

Hope that helps.
