I solved my problem by creating a click track at noteflight.com
The first four bars are triplets set to 207 BPM, which is equivalent to 621 pick strokes per minute. The next four bars are 16th note groups set to
155 BPM, which works out to 620 pick strokes per minute. Both groups of bars are set to repeat 18 times, which is an arbitrary number that corresponds
roughly to the workout I was downloading from metronomer.com
, around 600 strokes.
This system works very well because the metronome setting is adjustable and goes up quite high, well beyond my needs, to a staggering 1000
Another advantage of doing this job like this is that there is a red cursor that follows the notes as each is sounded, which gives a visual cue that
is helpful when working at these elevated speeds, where "counting" sort of goes out the window and "feel" takes over.
Anyway, I thought somebody might be interested in where I ended up with this problem.
