ive been playing for a year and a bit now....and ive learned most of the basics but i like challenging myself so i always try and learn sumthing harder....my right hands fine i can sweep pick economy pick....but my left hand like goes retarded after a bit....should i keep practising it fast or should i go back to the basics and try and jus alternate picking....i know u guys have said do it slow at first then werk your way up....but i only get to a certain point and my fingers go lame ...so i guess im saying am i jus not ready to do n e thin crazy yet...or do i jus suck balls lol

You can play Classical Gas after a year? I think we have a prodigy on our hands.

if you cant co-ordinate both hands then you can't do something ie you can't sweep pick at all if your two hands don't match up.

You're getting way too far ahead of yourself - there's no point practicing something "fast" if you can't actually play it because all that happens is you learn it wrong, practice it wrong and play it wrong. I know it's frustrating but essentially you're trying to play way faster than you're capable of and it's going to take a long time to get there. Play things at a speed at which you can play them PERFECTLY and gradualyl build from there - getting fast takes years, not months, weeks or days.

if your left hand "goes retarded after a bit" then you can't do it.

do exercises to a metronome. Start at a low bpm and then once you're consistently accurate at that tempo, increase the speed slightly. When you get to a speed where you start to make mistakes keep praticing at that tempo until you get it perfectly.

It'll take a while but it'll mean that you have accuracy, timing/rhythm and stamina. Which is essentially the 3 things to aim for in terms of technique.
Rhythm in Jump. Dancing Close to You.
