So i have been practicing a (relatively) complex riff, meaning it combines various techniques, for months now.
I can play all the isolated parts reliably but as soon as i want to put it all together it falls apart. I know this isnt an uncommon problem, especially amongst bedroom shredders. My practice schedule containst 95% of patterns (10 mins volcano licks, 10 mins ascending 4ths etc.etc.). This might have affected my playstyle: I think i got quite used to finding the most comfortable position/technique and then keep it for a while but i apparently have problems switching between those setups mid-riff. What i try to say is: After doing some downstrokes i fuck up an otherwise easy scalerun 7/10 times.
Obviously i need to work on that but since i havent had much success for a while here i’d like to hear if anybody else faced this challenge and how you guys approached it.
