Gabriel Perez Something that has helped me get better at this is by using a method taught to me by my theatre teacher, just changed up a bit so that it works better here. Play with the metronome and start at 80 BPM, play quarter notes, then eighth notes, then sixteenth notes. The trick is to play three times because what I was taught is, "If you can do it three times in a row cleanly then you can do it perfectly the next times." And for sixteenth notes you play it through five times. Each time you get through it cleanly you move up 5 clicks. I don't know how much help this would be for some people but it's something that has helped me a ton in progressing pretty quickly

Fernando Romero After spending some time on economy picking I just can't get rid of it and I'm barely able to do this at a normal speed :S
