We're picking up the tempo here. It's time to bounce along. Play out loud and strong.
Remember, you can always tone it down when you need to but in terms of power it's good to practice at or near maximum. If you go too far you'll start getting too much string noise and less tone. Find that edge and remember where the line is that says "Too much of a good thing!"
