So with guitar, I already have all my scales, and such, and I've been learning my theory to try to apply to my playing, but I'm not as fast as I want to be. I'm kind of a metal head, so speed is pretty crucial... Any exersizes???

Every video I find is "Hold ur pick like this" and "make sure notes are clean". I get all of that, but I need to know what to practice to help with hand syncing, and such... any suggestions???

The Chop Builder by Grank Gambale. The exercises are on YouTube and you can find the tabs as PDF on the internet pretty easily. There's something like 12 rounds and I can barely get through most of round 2. I consider myself a pretty decent player. Even those first 2 rounds... hell even just the first round, will get your speed and synchronicity way way improved.

Do it.

Since you're talking about picking, I'd go back to the basics with Paul Gilbert's Intense Rock 1. Work with a metronome and start painfully slow-i mean about 200bpm to get your control and clean up any slop. Keep working it faster and faster. I can do that stuff at 1000bpms now because of this which is something like 16 notes per second or something? Don't get too caught up in how many notes per second because easy stuff like that you can work it up to pretty easily. More complex stuff you won't necessarily be able to so speed is all relative to how complex the material is anyway.

Yeah learn to play like this. Lol https://youtu.be/1CEP0X9wMig If the easy Paul Gilbert stuff is a little beneath where you're at, get Rusty Cooley's Speed picking video from Chops from Hell if it's still up.

Nah, ignore the trolls, man. You can either pay for instructionals from random dudes on the internet who aren't as good as guys like Paul or Rusty at picking and are trying to dissect their playing to tell you what they think they're doing. Or you can just go straight to the source and get it.

Who are you again?

Go back to Ultimate guitar or wherever it is you came from.

Seriously this. Each round of exercises starts from one string to all 6 with varying patterns. Round 1 will give you a decent workout without being too challenging. Round 2 gets hard towards the end. Get the metronome out and go to work on these (some of them have some cool melodies too).

Which reminds me... I gotta start playing with this again. Been slacking off.
