i wrote a song recently thats sort of like the section at 1:48-2:17 here
except its like that the entire song

i find it super difficult to actually play consistently/in time
(its really slow arpeggios)
ill either miss a note or not play it loud enough, or do a slight timing error.... am i defective?
.... and then its like.... its already slow.... so my usual routine of playing things slow then speeding things up again doesnt work

the funny thing is i have no problem with playing fast johnny marr style arpeggios

a great guitar teacher once told me:
"Playing fast is easy, playing slow is also easy, but playing mid speed AND in tempo? now that is hard"

Playing slow is harder than playing fast. Playing slow exposes every musical flaw in your playing, and not just technique. Slow songs are harder to hold together, but they can teach you a lot about phrasing. It's usually the phrasing that is off when the song falls apart.

Yup, playing slow is tougher. For the ultimate test, try a really slow 24 bar Blues. It separates the novice from the polished players for sure!
