Lead guitar lessons are essential if you want to be able to play lightening fast guitar solos.
Have you reached your speed limit when it comes to lead guitar? I thought I had, but then I changed the way I held my pick, took some deep breaths and tried again.
The most important steps to improve your picking speed are:
- Relax – tension is your enemy. Relaxed muscles move faster.
- Hold the pick loosely.
- Economy of movement – dont’ move the pick more than you need to
- Avoid employing the elbow joint in picking, stick to just the finger/thumb and wrist. This is faster.
If you do this, you’ll be well on you way to picking (and soloing) faster than ever. If you don’t believe me, check out this video.
So, follow these tips and make sure you get some more lead guitar lessons.
