In other words, you
don't have to THINK about the pick, the articulation, the fret
position, or the fingering when you attempt to play a musical
idea, you just do it. This allows you to react to the music and
the musicians you're playing with, without thinking about all
the details of execution. So, when you practice something new,
be very thorough by forcing yourself to learn and practice your
ideas very slow until you can play them PERFECT with NO mistakes.
If you practice mistakes, you will play mistakes because that's
just the way that your mind and body work together.
Your body doesn't
know the difference, but your mind does, so, they have to be
in sync with each other. It is also a very good idea to go back
and review everything that you've learned using this technique
so you can clean up the things that tend to play sloppy right
now. Have patience. If you do this, I can guarantee you that
you will not have to worry about playing something fast again.
I hope that this tip has helped you in your on-going study of
playing the guitar. No one said that it was easy. Good luck and
