It is a good idea to slow things down to where you are comfortable but to do it at one tempo for 21 days is autistic and weird. John Petrucci had a lesson in one of his 90's videos I think where you play a passage for a few bars at a comfortable level that you can manage and then occasionally speed up past your limit for one bar and then go back to slow. Practice a passage where you can do it without excess tension and then push the tempo when you are comfortable. The exact time you should spend learning something varies on the passage and your level.. to arbitrarily choose 21 days to do one tempo is weird and I would not follow the advice of the people recommending this.
ajjhenson1 Thank you so much, I'm gonna try that method out from John Petrucci. I watched about 2hrs of his lessons, he seem decent as a teacher
Hey there ! It's my first post on this forum, and it's not a merry one
I've been playing guitar for a year and a half, in a thrash metal band and I have some really discouraging issues about my playing. I'm a rythm guy and we play with a LOT of distortion ( I mean, thrash right ? ), and my playing is dirty as hell, I can't seem to play without some strings ringing out now and then, even though I try to mute with both my right and left hand, it's still messy.
I'm also struggling to play standing up, my right hand feels really uncomfortable, I tire out really quickly when playing some fast alternate picking riffs, and I let out even more string noise when standing up... I practice hours a day, standing up mainly, and still, nothing... I'm getting pretty demoralized, even considered stopping guitar a few times... Got any tips or help for me ?
Thanks in advance !
Well I don't know if it's normal but I play differently when I play slow versus when I play fast, like I feel the motion is different.
Besides, there's something weird about my hand, when doing alternate pick I can't mute ALL the strings with my right hand, the g string is always ringing, or if I do mute all the strings it feel really uncomfortable to alternate pick anything, and I don't think playing slow will change anything
