Did you use the metronome to reach great speed ?

    It is essential for speed imo. Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

    If you wanna be cool and do it right, then yes. Metronome 100%.

    Speed just comes from excess precision. That said, I never practiced formally, but just built precision through a few years of playing in general.

    I've been playing for 13 years and when I say fast, I mean hyper speed.
    When I see myself on video, it seems fast, but it's like in a vehicle when you're driving at a certain speed.. it's fast but you feel it slow. I mean, it's not the same when listening/watching than when actually playing. Or is it just me :lol:

    Start at 60bpm. That ought to be slow enough.

    Wider intervals give an illusion of speed as well. I have never played with a metronome and consider myself to be at least able to play at a good speed.

    remember if you can do it in slow you can do it in fast also...
    if you try fast i wont master the slow tempos :)

    I like how the guitar pro's gradual metronome speed up works for that. I loop the part I want to practice 50% bpm increasing in intervals between 2 to 10%
