Practice slowly and controlled and you will be able to shred. Here are the steps to practice and muscle memory.
1 – Slow Practice – controlled, even, relaxed, ACCURATE repetition. The definition of practice is accurate repetition.
2 – Muscle coordination will develop from diligent slow practice. For every lick, solo, song, riff, etc., your hands need to learn a new coordination of movements. Remember – your hands are WAY dumber than your brain, so be patient.
3 – Reflex – this is when your muscles are fully coordinated and your are able to play on “auto-pilot.” This is the stage where speed develops cleanly, and long strings of notes can be played as a single group (without having to concentrate on every single note)..
4 – Speed and Endurance – playing fast or playing for long periods of time without tiring or straining your hands/wrists/shoulders/neck can be achieved when your reflex movements are running smoothly.
