Hi, welcome.It is not about where we are at the moment but where we will be in a month or a year : )My experience is that one needs to start with focused exercises and not spread too muchespecially when you have little time in a day to practice.Picking and timingPebber always advised me to keep practicing only quarter notes for a (long) while so that timing can sink in.I try hard to stick to that although I occasionally try note subdivisions as well.

Here is some helpful advice from Pebber who made an effort to steer us in the right direction.If you have not seen it already here it is.Also, if you want, we can stick to pickingon one string and try to sort out our timing problems a bit during Julyand open a Class2020 thread on adjacent picking next month or even laterso that we don't rush it at the expense of doing it right.If someone would like to upload recent picking on adjacent strings practice videowe can easily make a thread dedicated t...
