Let me first say you have definitely improved your playing. That's good. You are definitely getting there.
You can sweep pick better than I could if I tried, though I haven't tried.
But, I think the whole thread would've started better had you been a bit more judicious in your selection of words.
I think you may agree that this has gotten you in minor trouble here before. Word selection and what you wrote versus what you meant.
For you to initially state you had MASTERED the technique....well, it was good but surely not mastered. And you even corrected yourself with this..."Okay. You're right. I haven't completely mastered it yet. However, I have come to the point where I can play sixteenth notes cleanly ............at about 175bpm and modes at about 180bpm. ....That means that I am now satisfied with it and I can move onto other techniques.
(bold italics mine)
This is a bit more correct. My two cents worth, sounds like you still have a bit of room for improvement in smoothness and clarity in your technique.
Now, don't get me wrong. At the rate you have shown improvement, in another few months, you would be playing those same pieces even more smoothly and clearly.
My suggestion would be to maintain the work you are doing in this area and make another video or two after a while. Then, you can take a more critical listen and make the comparison yourself. I think you would see an even greater improvement.
Anyhow, keep up the good work and the improvements.
