: I'm doing some stage band music that really sizzles but I'm getting old & slow. Any ideas on how to pick up speed a notch? I'm picking on a Fender fretless with flatwound strings, but it's my left hand that can't keep up. Thanks.

"Speed follows accuracy" has been burned into me time and time again. Get back with a metronome again and start annoyingly slow, and gradually work your way to a faster, then faster, then faster tempo. This is the only way I know how to increase speed.
