So you advocate learning how to play over actual chord changes... just for the sake of it?

If you don't play fast you're wrong

If you can play well fast and you can play well slow, aren't you playing either just for the sake of it?

I really hate playing music just for the sake of it, personally.

If the music calls for it, sure. I suppose I could've articulated better. When "fast" is the apparent goal - not the tune, music, idea, or line. Trying to cram in as many notes as possible, as fast as possible as a goal, without regard what those notes are / how they fit in context.

I get what you're saying. I was just joking with you.

There's a whole genre built around playing fast for the sake of it. The music definitely calls for it then.

Cliched rhymes. Think early Beatles. "Only" rhymes with "lonely". "You" rhymes with "blue". Et cetera.
