Traditional Speed Exercises DON'T WORK!
If I asked you to increase your speed by the end of the month, would you be able to do that?
Do you have a go-to method to quickly improve your picking speed whenever you want?
Most players would just practice speed exercises over and over with a focus on accuracy. But I’m sure you’ve tried that many times before, and have seen little to no results. It might have worked to get you to your current top speed, but this won’t help you break through your plateau and increase your speed beyond what you’re used to.
Just like you can’t practice running by walking really fast, you can’t practice speed picking by practicing slow and accurate.
You need to practice BEYOND your normal speed.
But there’s a right way, and a wrong way to do this, and if you practice this the WRONG way you’ll risk developing bad habits that will ultimately hold you back from playing at high speeds. That's why I created this course!
Introducing: GUITAR SPEED BUILDER
An in-depth online course teaching you a speed building practice routine that generates results QUICKLY.
Using academic research examining the relationship between accuracy vs speed, I’ve developed a practice method that applies high intensity short intervals of notes to help your muscles adapt to the same motions and movements you’ll actually be using, when you start playing really fast licks.
In other words...
A method that works!
By the end of this course, you'll understand:
Why practicing ‘Slow and accurate’ is holding you back
The core exercise routine that will quickly increase your speed
The fundamental precision techniques for playing clean and tight at high speeds
How to properly practice and speed up difficult licks
How to improve hand synchronicity
And much more!
To get faster, you must practice faster!

Who is SPEED BUILDER for?
If you're not seeing any progress with your speed, if you feel stuck and the same practice routine that got you to your current top speed is no longer giving you results, then this course is for YOU.
If you keep messing up on the same lick you've practiced for months, or can't get your hands to stay synchronized, then this course is for YOU.
If you want to play faster than you've ever played, then this course is for YOU!
**This course IS NOT for beginners who just picked up the guitar! You should have at least 1 year of guitar playing experience, and should be able to play scales, read TABS, and want to take your speed to the next level**
By the end of this course you’ll have the skillset to continually push your speed to its limits
There is no way I can promise you any specific tempo. Everyones different, and it depends on how much you practice, and how much experience you already have on the guitar.
But here's what I can tell you…
Guitar Speed Builder gets guitarists results, and if you learn this method and follow the process, you’ll also get results.
