My first post here. I've already picked up a few tips here. Hopefully I can contribute to the forum, learn a few learn things, and maybe make a few friends along the way.
Anyway, I'm looking for some help with my left and right hand synchronization. A few months back I made some changes. I changed my pick, pick position, tuning, and string gauge. In all the transition went pretty smoothly, but I'm finding that my left and right hand synchronization is breaking down in places where it didn't before. As expected, mainly playing at high speed but not always. My left hand seems to run away from the right especially descending runs between the 3rd and 4th finger.
I've been trying to bring up the speed using a metronome but as for really playing I'm still have a hard time.
Any advise, exercises, tips, etc would be much appreciated.
Ring and pinky finger trills.
Seriously. Build that strength and coordination. Trills are great in general for left hand stuff. Do them with and without metronomes, as part of jamming over a backing track, or something similar.
