I've searched around but I haven't found an article that shows you how to practice to play faster. Now don't suggest to play it over and over again until you get faster, there have got to be a technique!
I've read that you just "drop" the finger and lift it but I really don't get this. My note isn't clear when I do that since I need to use more muscles to press on the string.
Also, I find that if I play each note w/ only one finger on the finger board, I can play faster but if I keep any fingers on the board, I have to struggle to keep it going (and I know this is bad). an example would be the running passage of Czardas (which is what I'm trying to learn)
Any excercise or techniques you can show me?
