The very simple, but highly effective, idea is to play each note more than once, then gradually lower the amount. This accomplishes a few things at once. After all the key to training your mind and body to do some specific physical technique is repetition.
By dwelling on each note more than once, also, you are not required to move your fretting hand fingers so often. You are in effect "slowing down" a fast lick, but still playing fast. And this also give you a lot of work on your alternate picking technique, which is an essential part of this whole process of building speed.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
