I've got a little more free time at the moment, so hope to get back to the banjo and do some serious practising. I need to get faster, anyone got some speeding-up tips? (From slow, that is!!)

The best tip I know of is pratice, pratice, pratice. Happy Thanksgiving

Yea, that's the remedy, practice, practice and more practice. But also keep upping the speed of your metronome or what ever devise you use to keep you in check.
Happy pickin, John.

Practice playing very soft with verly little pick contact, that will speed you up by itself, If you play easy you will be more relaxed, I'm retired and practice everyday and play in jams a couple of times a week, I think only time and practice will bring that really fast speed. You can't play real fast and loud at the sametime, at least I can't.

Gary, that's a really good tip, I can see the sense in that, thanks so much - I'll be giving that a try tomorrow. Bryan.
