Thanks for the reply!
My overall goal with technique is to be extremely comfortable with every type of picking encounter, and marry that with great improvisational skill. To be more specific (and impractical, ha), I desire the freedom that Guthrie has - to basically just be able to express myself without limitations - and within reason of course.
Also, yes I am enjoying myself greatly. Maybe a bit too much, as this is a big part of my problem. Working on technique is my favorite part of the day, and I would rather do that than play to jam tracks or work on theory.
A bit more info about my regimen: A lot of the exercises I am doing are actually segments of songs/solos, and for most of them, I don’t yet have them up to speed. This shows me that there is still progress to be made.
For example, a part of my Picking practice for Mondays, Wed and Fridays is working on the Erotomania string skipping segment. I work on that for around 20 minutes, starting from a slow tempo and eventually pushing past the boundaries of what I am comfortable with.
Once the day comes that I can play that as consistently as possible, cleanly up to speed while relaxed, I will retire that from my regimen and replace it with something else.
