Some patterns are more difficult than others, Especially when little finger have to be played before the third one!

I improve a little bit this exercise (Yes I'm crazy) by jump one cord each time
E string then D string then A string then G string then D string then B string then G string then E string.
Jump 3 cord is also possible!

One question: what step of tempo increase do you suggest? 5bpm by 5bpm. For some speed I'm stuck and couldn't go at higher speed. I don't know what to do.

What do you suggest to increase your speed? I'm actually in 4 beats per bar and 4 clip per beats So i have 12 clip per bar.
In this configuration, I'm stuck at 100 bpm and only with the configuration 1234.... For the other combination I'm stuck around 80 bpm. I don't know how to increase my speed...

Could show what you do? It can be in the way you hold the pick or lifting up your finger to much or anything like that

If u get stuck you have 2 options (from what worked for me)
Either stay at a speed you are just barely comfortable and can play till you are fully comfortable and then speed up

Or (the controversial one) just kick up the speed to somewhere retardedly fast where u can only play a few notes before you fail
Do that for awhile and suddenly u can play more than just a few

Ive uses both methods and they both have their place
The first when u wanna perfect your technique and the 2nd when you want to break a barrier of speed
