    Guitarplayerman,
    Very nice...
    One question though...have you ALWAYS been able to play fast? or did you at some point; stop, and consiously try to "shred"...

    Your technique reminds me of paul gilberts style; that's why I ask...(that and I'd like to be able to do that!)

    No I couldn't always play fast and there are times when it just won't come out...I didn't real;ize how fast people could play tilll I went to Berklee for a summer course way back in like 83. One of the fellow students...had Dimeola style picking down. So i worked on it then. Mostly you need to work on soem repetitive patterns. You got to play them a million times. Metronome work is crucial. Also there is a four finger pseudo chromatic exercise...musically it's nothing..but that helps build up the fingers. You might know that already. LAtely I been working on those cascading Eric Johnson style pentatonic runs...but can't pop them into improvisation yet...they have helped increase the speed.
