Been trying to learn the second fast run of the intro to The Spirit of Radio by Rush. "Tabbed" (134 bpm 16th notes): G7 G7 G5 G4 D7 G4 D7 D5 D4 A7 D4 A7 A5 A4 A0 For a while I've been struggling to play this at 100 bpm. Today I tried something new. I set a metronome to 134 and started playing tiny fragments. At first only G7 G7 G5 G4 ... pause ... G7 G7 G5 G4 ... over and over. Then trying G7 G7 G5 G4 D7 etc. Within 15 minutes I'm playing it note for note at 134. It seems like playing at high speed requires a different approach. You need to get into the "feel"/"flow" (lighter, more precise attack) of the technique required at 134 bpm and that's difficult without actually being there. Once you do, it's like unlocking a door to playing fast.
