Was just pondering this the other night - is it safe to say that if you can hit 180bpm or above (let’s use 4x bars of 16th note tremolo as a reference) that you might of ‘hit’ your limit?
Having experimented with wrist, forearm/wrist blend, and elbow I seem to hit a similar tempo with all right hand variations. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced something similar?
On a good day I seem to sit at 180bpm easily, and on good day can get that to around the 190bpm - 195bpm range. Anything above 200 though is only via short bursts and not exactly rock solid.
As a reference I’m a metal rhythm guy, so not being able to comfortably play in the 200bpm+ range is quite disheartening as so much of my favourite material sits in the 200bpm - 240bpm range.
I’m interested to see if anyone else has experienced this as well?
