i can get 16ths at 160 bpm cleanly, but that doesn't make me a good guitar player. It's what you do with that speed that makes the difference, not just the speed on it's own.

For other people, and myself of course, but to impress myself, speeding doesnt do it, playing coool un-fast songs, doing blues jamming that makes sense, like note targetting instead of speeding, and also sitting down and figuring out songs, and thinking about how the whole system works. THAT is soo much more fun and satisfying for me than building even more speed which i will just never use.

I can get 17nps but not very cleanly. thats alternate picking by the way. I need some boot camp speed training to get my chops cleaner.

I can play fast enough to "leech" cumpliments of people. counting how many notes you can play in one second is the same like you calculate the number of water on the ocean.
