Last year I bought a tele, just for kicks, and am pretty proficient on it, except playing really fast chords (especially palm mutes) is hard. My friends band (my little circle of friends involves me, 2 other people, and the 3 in the band) wants me to join to help bring more stage presence in the band. They are amazing musicians (great songwrite, FAST drummer) and although they are 16 and 17, they have been playing music together for 4 years. They just recorded a full length, and are playing some shows locally. The reason that they need more stage presence is because the bassist (we're at about the same level technichally, but he just spent A LOT on gear, so he'll stay put) also sings, and can't move around a lot at all. The guitarist is the cool *rock star* type, and stands in the corner, much like the stereotypical bassist would p ) and the drummer is, well, sitting. So I agreed, and am learning the songs (I can sing them, and know the words, but they arent *done* yet. My question is this, what can I do to play faster, they are seriously the fastest band I have ever heard, and need to improve quite a bit. I want this to work, and am trying as hard as possible to get it to. Thanks in advance.
