Default Guitar Speed Exercises

Hi. Does anyone have any exercises they use to build speed for fast-paced shredding? Thanks

lol

Or, alternatively you could learn arpeggiated chords, alternate picking, and even some tapping techniques. Plenty of video's out there to help. Build up slow and use proper form to condition your muscle memory. It takes quite a bit of practice, but you'll get there if you put in the work.

Think most people would say start extremely slow with a metronome. 60 BPM. And do those 1 2 3 4 or 4 3 2 1 patterns.

Definitely want to take it slow at first as psychedlic mentioned, to make sure your form is good and you aren't learning bad habits.

on the other hand if you're a punk just strum the chords fast because nobody cares if you're sloppy

Practice, practice, practice till muscle memory takes over.

Miserlou by Dick Dale. And the picking style in that song. Practice 16th notes a bunch of times on a single note. Then change the note with as smooth a transition as possible. For right hand learn solos you like. Sweet child of mine isn't too hard I think. Depending where you are.

There's a book called Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar by Troy Stetina. Don't get hung up on whatever genre or musical examples are in the book. It's all about refining your technique at the "atomic" level in order to get speed, and this book helped me more than probably any other at improving my speed/technique.
