John F. Abate, who operates Wintrack, Success Publishers LLC, and Marketforce, has provided printed guides addressing various gambling topics for more than 30 years. During his spare time, John F. Abate likes to play the guitar, an activity which requires rhythm as well as dexterity.
While starting slow and steadily increasing one’s pace with a given lick can help get that lick up to the player’s current top speed, guitarists need to practice increasing their overall top speed deliberately to see improvement. Playing notes quickly can have a few different blocks.
If the problems are physical, guitarists need to focus on efficiency. Rather than pull the pick away between notes, guitarists who want to play more quickly should let it rest between strings. Fingers should fret notes by their tips, rather than the pads, and motions that don’t help play a note should be minimized.
Mental or rhythm problems require their own approach. A metronome can help a guitarist build the sense of timing necessary to play at speed, and can improve fundamentals as well. Guitarists who want to develop their speed should also work on mentally processing each note as it is played, as this reduces mistakes.
