Shredding that fast at 18. How do you build up your speed?

I'm stuck on the same speed I've been at for a while.

the riff in it is from Electric Eye by Judas Priest i think (well that song has a very similar sounding riff).

Cool backing track, i think we should get TO\HJM\Tim + Steve to have a go (+ anyone else who wants a go!)

Just practicing to a metronome and setting myself goals which are higher then my playing ablity. I fond that i would constantly be playing songs which were around the same difficulty level. I eventually started pushing myself and learning songs which would take over a week to learn. Start off slow and build yourself up.

I would practice scale fragments to a metronome and play them at around 60bpm at 16ths and when you feel comfortable at that speed bring it up 2-3bpm and carry on doing so. Dont move on if dont feel comfortable. Also analyse the way you are picking and make sure you are hitting everything cleanly.

There are people on this forum far better then me, so if people want to give some better advice go for it.

I was also thinking maybe we should have a solo competition on this forum, a monthly one with a winner for tone and a winner for playing.

Just downloaded the backing track and burned it to CD. It does have a little bit of that Eletric Eye vibe going on ... definitely harmonic minor. I will start working on it today. :)

That's what shredder forums are for! This ain't a competition, and if it ever became one, I would stop posting clips.

Just an idea...calm down!

It occured to me that TO had enjoyed playing over the backing track, and that more people on the forum may of wanted to record more clips of their BKP tones.

My idea was just to have a monthly backing track for people to record, play and discuss on the forum. For me I find this a useful way to learn, as you can pick up ideas from other people as a means of developing your own technique and style.

I really didnt expect such an agressive response, and apologise for coming across as suggesting something so heinous.  :wink:

That sounds OK to me. It wouldn't be competitive, more like a platform to swap phrasing and tone ideas. We can all learn from each other. Good idea! :D
