Practice, it's that simple. Try starting slow and speed up gradually.

Then practise better. Start slow and build up. It doesn't matter how long you practise. if you practise badly then you play badly.


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

Look in advance at the strings that you know are going to come up. This way you're mind sticks it in its subconscious that it's going to have to eventually go there. Kind of the same thing with the left hand. I can't believe that you've been doing it for eight years and you're still not able to see any improvement. Keep trying though man!

gotta practise as slowly as you can cos you get more muscle memory that way. Also pick out the bits you are getting wrong and just focus on them, dont keep playing the whole thing over and over again, cos that way you'll never learn.

If you're hitting the wrong strings a lot then you've not been learning things properly, you've got to a certain point and said to yourself "right, that's good enough".

You'll have to to some "re-learning", go back and really cast a critical eye over things you can play, and be brutally honest with yourself. Is it good enough, or can you do better? If it's not good enough then work on it, find the speed at which you can play it accurately then gradually build speed. As far as general picking practice goes af few exercises won't hurt, like chromatics and some scale patterns, but throw some horizontal movement and string skipping in there to keep it interesting. However, working on the actual songs you know is just as important.

Then play it slower and gradually increase the speed when you get it 100% right. Remember, accuracy is more important than speed so focus on that primarily.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.
