In this edition of Guitar Gym, Chris Buono focuses on developing your speed picking technique with an emphasis on control, stamina, timing and (of course) speed. Buono will guide you through 27 Workouts across 3 levels. In Level 1 you rock 16th notes through open string-based ideas that make use of all six strings with Workouts ranging from 50 BPM to 110BPM. In Level 2 you strategically race through the three most common three-note-per-string sequences while the tempos increase to 60 BPM through 120 BPM. Level 3 really fires the afterburners by having you fly through three-note-per-string scale cells in sextuplets that descend down the neck in thirds in a zigzag motion at a tempo range of 70 BPM and 130 BPM.

Practice does NOT make perfect -- "perfect" practice does. We've heard this time and again from our instructors and we get it; practice the wrong thing, or practice the wrong way, and you'll learn how to play it perfectly wrong. Makes "perfect" sense but what exactly do we practice, and how specifically do we practice it? TrueFire's resident Professor of the Deep, Chris Buono has invested the last couple of decades coming up with the answer.
Developing solid guitar techniques is particularly subject to the quality and intensity of your practice regimens -- you'll only get so far relying on repetition and frequency alone.
