    Excellent playing technique.
    My biggest stumbling block for me, as well as practically everyone else, lol, is the moving from string to string. One can go a million miles an hour on one string then crash on the next. There's so much analysis on how to do that, many with differing methods. I find that every player who can really play fast has their own particular way they were able to achieve it and doesn't necessarily apply to everyone.
    Pick slant this way, that way, don't slant this way, that way….
    Some say the 'play slow before play fast' doesn't necessarily work because once you go fast your muscle/movement technique needs to change …. Kinda like an animal going from walk to trot to full gallop. …so you should be emphasizing pushing the speed from the beginning. In that, emphasizing too much of the 'slow' is reinforcing muscle memory that won't be used in order to play fast.
    There's the tight/micro movement folk, but then you have arguably the most articulate speed picker on earth, Steve Morse, flailing away at the strings from inches away, lol.
    I guess the best thing to do is check out all these different methods and see what works for yourself and your unique musculature. 🙂
