Alright, _NowakP, you're amazing. Here's another lick:

This one is in Eb Harmonic Minor, and just keep repeating it.

-----17-18-20------20-18-17-18-20---------------------------------20-18-----
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Playing the legato part fast makes it sound pretty cool.

Well, playing 80% accuracy at 160bpm can get you 100% at 120, don't you think? :P

I mean, you have a lick you can only play sitting down, and you can play it really clean every once in a while, but not always.

Even though, you eventually start playing it faster just for the kicks and because you need it for some song or whatever. And by actually forcing yourself to pay it faster you get more proficient at doing it, and well you practice it more, still have the fun and end up being more confident while playing it at lower speeds. Resulting in being able to play it clean while standing up, with a guitar up your ass or whatever :lol:

Then you just repeat the process again to get it even faster. I mean - you have to push yourself somehow. It's not like you can get a 100% accuracy on a lick at 120bpm and then a 100% accuracy at 140, 160 or w/e BPM without actually trying and forcing yourself to play faster beforehand.

Hope you get my way of thinking. BTW - we're spamming the thread and it's not "your shred licks" anymore but "speed building for freaks" :lol:


yep; we're spamming... :lol:
well, maybe 80% isn't always the same as 80%.
I think you can get it down the way you described, as long as the missing 20% isn't always the same fingering in a lick, a string skip, sweep or whatnut...
if the whole take is alright in 80% and the 20% failure are in this spot this time, and in that spot the next take, without any specific problem showing up, I guess it might work like that.

there's just so many songs I can play with 80% beeing perfect, and it's just a couple of bars that totally ruin it for me... :lol:
and I know this bars will keep on killing me, if I play them sloppy just because the rest of the song is easier for me, you know?
guess I got you wrong there.

That's something I do when I'm just noodling around. But instead of tapping, I do a position shift up a position which forces me to work on my pulloffs, which I'm terrible at. Good lick.

I could have put it in as 32nd notes, but it seems easier to think about when it's octuplets. I don't know, I'm not too good with theory.
