Reply To: Swallowtail Jig Practice
Personally, I recommend not pushing the tempo too much at this point. Find a comfortable speed and loop it for WAY LONGER than you think. If you do that, something magical happens. Your body and mind relax.
If you do want to push the tempo, do it incrementally using a metronome, keeping track of your fastest tempo.
Also, enjoy the sound of all tunes at slower tempos. It’s different but beautiful in its own right.
If you practice steadily at medium tempos now, you’ll be better postioned to play faster later.
