This is a very general topic, but I would appreciate some support or feedback on this.
This is my second day trying to record this damn riff, It is a very technical riff, but I mean two fucking days.
I try to concentrate on the picking while recording, and im always A little out of sync. (I hate to Quantize after wards, I want to be able to play it perfectly)
To all the shredders out there, Any Tips?
Slow it down. Practice to a metronome at 50% speed. Get that perfect. Bump it up to 60%. Get that perfect. Keep going until you get to 110%. Then when you go back to 100% it will be easy.
Also, If you go from (as an example) 70% to 80%, and the 80% gets really sloppy, go back to 70% and get it perfect again, before moving on.
It really comes down to practice, practice, practice. But it's important to practice correctly, meaning playing it wrong at 100% speed is much, much worse than correct at 80%. You will develop muscle memory of what you're practicing, and if you are practicing playing it wrong, you'll have a much harder time ever playing it correctly.
