I might have to end up like the Edge and just play two notes and hope the delays and huge racks take care of the rest :-) At 40 I am worth considerably more than i was 20 years ago. So in effect perhaps the older guitarist has more $ to invest in equipment :-)[br]

wise words adrian i cannot argue with you. money certainly is a big issue when you are younger but when you get older the wife and kids normally spend what you have worked hard for !!!

you can teach an old dog new tricks. its possible in time youll be able to play at lightning speeds .its al down to practise and hard work. remember steve vais 50 . (fair enough hes been playing since he was 13 or so. but he certainly isnt getting slower. faster if anything. )

Time and determination are the key. If you really want to play fast then you'll do the work and get there or else you'll decide that being able to play a song in it's entirety is a better use of your time. Neither option is wrong just how you see your playing progressing. The important thing is to keep playing!

Let us know in a year or two which path you chose

Steve Vai is a genetic freak. His fingers themselves are the length of Salamaders in the sun.... but I digress..... there's a big difference between a ";average "; person playing for 20 years and a world champion born with every advantage doing the same... [br]

Yes I do believe I'll be ten times better in 2 years than I am now. Then again 10 x 0 = 0 so I may even be 100 times better :-) And I'm enjoying the journey which is the best part of it. I'm also loving my Godin and Cube 80x. Most versatile equipment I've come across for those not playing on stage or in bands.[br]
[br]
I eventually want to get better amps etc but that's years down the line. Who knows where my path shall lead.. until then...simply make the best of what you've got...[br]

Its from typing so much in response to you guys comments. The palms are from when upon reading some of you'se guys commentary, I just have to go take a "Queen mum" is it? Over here it's an "Obama", nevertheless it gives you blisters on your palms from all of that wiping.

Hi Adrian
Playing fast doesn't necessarily mean and playing good. Is a sprinter a better athlete than a marathon runner?
Strive to play good and everything should work out.
Cheers

Any instructor worth his weight (like Danny) will tell you this. Would you rather be accurate or fast and sloppy? If you're using a metronome (and you should), after you've mastered each BPM accurately and cleanly with no mistakes, then you move up a step in speed until you've mastered that cleanly and so forth and so on.
