Guitar Speed Trainer Picking Exercises

FaChords Guitar Rhythmic Trainer is an online tool that will help you develop speed and accuracy on guitar. It's well known that if you want to play fast on the guitar, first of all you must be able to play slow, clear and comfortably. Once you get a good level of precision, you can try to play a bit faster, pushing yourself a little out of you comfort zone.

There is no shortcut; this is the only way to get fast picking speed. A useful feature of this online tool is the possibility to increase gradually and automatically the speed during the exercise.

For example, suppose you want to practice a musical sequence that you are able to play comfortably at 120 bpm. You set the initial speed at 110 bpm (or a bit less), the duration of the exercise, for example 20 bars, and the target speed, suppose at 130 bpm. Then you press the START button and begin to exercise. The Speed Trainer forces you to accelerate, but in a smooth and imperceptible way. The final outcome is that your fingers learn to play a bit faster little by little.

Several kinds of time signatures are available: 4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 7/9, 9/8, and more.

This tool is under redesign, please come back later. In the meantime, check the new guitar learning software
