Hey guys I need some help developing a solid practice routine. In past, because I'm relatively new to playing my chops have always increased exponentially just because thats how it is when you're new and you learn a new technique (IE tapping or whatever) every few months. Anyways, I noticed in the past two years, and this past year specifically, my chops haven't really improved at all. I mean they've improved but not like they have in the past, it kind of feels like I've gone nowhere, if that makes sense at all? I dont really want to call it a plateau because it's not like I haven't improved at all, just marginally
For this year I've kind of picked a few songs and worked on them intermittently, and that's been my, 'practice' for the year.
I really want to be able to play something by say...Spawn of Possession by the end of next year. How would I go about building a good practice regiment?
Is there any book or DVD set I should get? I was thinking of Rock Discipline by Petrucci but that's kind of old now and maybe there's something better out.
Thanks and I hope that made some sense.
