Most guitarists want to play fastЧbut, truth be told, itТs not the speed of the
Уguitar godsФ that impresses us, itТs rather the evenness with which they play each
note. Playing fast is easy; playing in rhythm is hard.
WeТve already begun to experience some quicker time values in our study of eighth
notes. This chapter will take us further, into the speedier world of sixteenth notes
and triplets. As always, playing slowly and evenly is far more important than burning
up the strings.
As you progress through this chapter, the temptation will be to pick up speed.
ThatТs fine, as long as you remember to keep playing evenly!
