Not use how to phrase this question, but I'm kinda looking for things to build up speed in my soloing so that my fingers can keep up with maybe something that I'm hearing in my head but cannot execute fast enough in a normal manner. I started thinking of using hammer-ons/pull-offs as a wholly legit technique (it don't care if ppl consider it cheating). I found in an old thread that Ray Parker did some of this to combat bebop playing. Perhaps this is very close to slurring notes with a bow? Not sure. I have been actually picking the bow back up again and find it useful practice. Anyways, do any of you guys have any suggestions for treating the technique as something that can be practiced in an etude? I have been running through scales playing them in 3 and 4 note segments - similar to Hanon Exercises for piano. It didn't occur to me til just now but I might crack open Simandl and doing the exercises with an emphasis on HO&PL. Ideas? Thoughts? Thanks.
