    Much of what we do is scale and/or arpeggio based and becoming a master of scales and arpeggios goes a long way to increasing speed and confidence.

    The key is to make a weakness a strength. This is done by working on things you cannot do well and that is called intelligent practice.
    Being good at Tenderly but not at A Trumpeter's Lullaby shows a weakness at intervals and proper tonguing. (There's more to it, but lets leave it at that.) Fix the problem with the lullaby and Tenderly will get better, too.

    As far as I'm concerned, Doc is setting the bar on that.

    " I classify all uncorrected errors as "microbes" which, although
    invisible to the naked eye, are deadly-even more deadly than an animal as big as an
    elephant. One can run away or hide from or dodge an elephant, but not so with a
    microbe, These minute organisms multiply rapidly and in large number if not
    immediately driven out of the system." - Herbert L. Clarke

    The great Mendez said it best. If you want to play fast, learn to play slow first.
    Here is an example of Mendez playing very fast.
