Day 98. Applying new technique

Today I’ve started holding my pinky on the guitar body in order to get better in picking. The precision have become better, but the pinky stays in the way from time to time so I need more time to get used to it.

Songs

MGMT – Kids [Solo]

8th notes @ 145 bpm. I played it pretty well yesterday but after applying new picking technique with holding my pinky on the guitar body the same things became harder. After several minutes I’ve kind of got used to this but still not completely.

8th notes @ 150 bpm. I decided to increase the speed to diverse the practice, because I got sick of playing the same solo at the same speed for ages.
