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.

It's not about practicing more, it's about practicing RIGHT.

To get faster, you must practice faster.

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!


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!

"I joined Guitar Speed Builder in 2020 and was very impressed with Roy's teaching because once I applied his method, I was able to increase my 16th note speed by 10 BPM in just 7 days.

I've since taken what I learned from his program and applied it to my own students, helping them increase their speed as well.

For anyone looking to
ACTUALLY  improve their playing speed, Roy's method is a game changer."

  • Are there subtitles or translations?
    The course videos are in English, but there are on-screen subtitles available in: English, Spanish, Chinese and Korean. We will be adding a lot more languages soon, but so far we've gotten the most requests for those languages.
  • What's the refund policy and how do I get a refund?
    30 day, money back guarantee, no questions asked. Try the course for 30 days, and if you don't think it's worth it or you don't improve, simply ask for a refund: 1) Email our support team at 2) Your refund will be processed within the next few hours. 3) It'll take about 1 - 7 business days for you bank, or PayPal account to receive the refund, after we have processed your request. Very simple :)
  • Is this a one-time payment, or a monthly membership?
    It's a one-time payment, for lifetime access. There are no monthly fees, or extra fees after you pay once.
  • How long do I have access to the course?
    You get Lifetime access to the course, including all future updates. That means you can purchase the course today, and work through it whenever you have time. No rush.
  • I just started playing guitar and want to play fast. Will this course help me?
    This course is designed for players with at least 1 year of experience. You should be able to play scales up and down, play a few solos, alternate pick, and be able to read tabs. If you're unsure, you can always try the course, and if you feel it's too difficult and beyond your level, then we'll refund you the full amount.
  • Can I download the files to watch offline?
    This course is entirely online, and you need to have internet connection to access this course. You can download all the sheet music, tabs, and Guitar-Pro files for the licks, exercises and songs, but all the videos can only be viewed online.
  • Will this work on acoustic guitar too?
    Absolutely! The techniques and practices are applicable to both electric and acoustic guitars. (We've also had student success with Bass Guitar!) Please keep in mind: this course was created with the electric guitar in mind, so a lot of the licks and sequences use higher frets that are hard to reach on acoustic guitars. In that case, just play those sections an octave lower.
  • How long is the course?
    The course is about 3 hours long, but you don't have to go through the entire 3 hours to get started with the exercise routine. Once you understand the method and learn the routine, you can start practicing right away while you slowly go through the rest of the course at your own pace.
  • What if I have technical issues like logging in or accessing the course?
    Our incredible support team is here to help. Simply email Jack at and he'll be happy to help you within a few hours. You're always dealing with a human being, and never with a robot. *Please don't message Roy on instagram, facebook, or any other social media platform if you need technical help. Those inboxes are not monitered and you won't get a response.*
  • How will I know if I'm practicing this correctly?
    Without feedback, it's hard to know if you're on the right track. That's why this course includes free access to our private members only Facebook community with over 6500 other players. We encourage you to post videos in the group and ask for feedback. The community is there to help, and Roy monitors the group as well. We're here to help every step of the way. That's why the community was created :)
  • Is all of the content available straight away, or is it released week by week?
    All the content is available immediately after enrolment, so you can learn at your own pace.
  • Am I learning musical ideas too, like theory, scales, how to solo, etc? Or is this only technique?
    This course is designed to help you play faster. The focus of the course is speed building, technique, and practical exercises. Although you'll learn musical sequences, 2 melodic solos, a few licks and other cool 'musical' ideas, that's not the point of this course. If you're interested in more melodic playing, theory and scales, please check out Roy Ziv's other courses.
  • I have more questions about this course. Can I contact you?
    Absolutely! Feel free to contact us with any questions. We're here to help. Contact @ royzivmusic . com
