I've been playing for a year now and I've started to add some speed exercises to my practice routine. This is mostly to help develop my overall technique now I've started to play more scales and lead stuff. I'm currently able to play 16th notes at 60bpm comfortably, up and down the fretboard. I'm wondering if I should have a target goal, which would be considered proficient for someone at an intermediate level? I've heard people say 16th's at 200bpm is the standard, but that seems miles off where I am and would consume a lot of my practice time for a few years I suspect, to get there.
I understand this is a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" type question, but just looking for some guidance to help me set a goal and decide how much time I commit to it.
