Finally, after practicing with a metronome since christmas, i can do very fast John Petrucci-esque Alt. picking.

It felt awesome, it was like finally "getting" how to improvise, or "getting" how to bend, etc.

It just felt right, it was easy to do, well easier than when i started.

I admit its not perfect, but imo its cleaner than most kids playing for around 2 years.

Btw, i think i found the best way to practice legato


Practice an hour JUST alt picking, than when you play legato, its like your fingers are "jogging", as opposed to alt picking being "running"


its cool.
