Streaming

You just keep streaming as if no slider were there. Sometimes you may have to pause momentarily to adjust for the time that the slider takes, but that's normally only the case when the stream switches to pure sliders or for some reason has a long slider.

position your fingers above the keys you've bound to left and right click in order to press the circles as they appear

this is theoretically the best positioning as it allows you to hit the circles rather than pressing useless keys that don't do anything

How do you do sliders within streams? I can never figure out their frequency (when there are chains), nor when the streams resumes its normal pace.
Just have to read it. You should try learning to read streams as individual circles instead of a chain anyway.

Well I'm having a problem with streaming too. I've been trying to get my stamina/consistency up by playing this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecyNfc4cA7Y
I am playing it in halftime because my fingers aren't as good as staiains. I've been playing that every day with NF on, 4 times a day for the entire week now.
The second and third play on the same day are all improvents to the one before. The fourth play is usually similar to the third play.
I was able to get a really low amount of misses (but really bad accuracy) on the third/fourth plays every day, however the first two plays are quite painful and it costs me a lot of effort just to be able to keep my fingers streaming for 5 minutes.

What is strange is that each consecutive day, my score, streaming speed, stamina and concistency seem worse than the day before. (With the exception of the second day where my overall performance on that map increased by 10%)

Does this mean this map is bad to practice on, or does it just mean that I fatigued my fingers too much and I need to take a break? I also feel like what suffered most of all from practicing that map is my streaming speed. I am not able to get good scores on mid-high bpm stream maps anymore

This is why we don't endorse playing with NF and generally practicing bad accuracy.

Same reason, just the end result.

No, the map is fine. You aren't fine for the map. You should be playing stuff that you can at least maintain your finger speed, and focus on consistency first. For people without stamina, even 160 BPM can be too much. I trained my stamina/accuracy at this speed for several months. Your fingers are tired yes, but that's not all that happened. If you get that "twitchy uncertainty" while playing which makes you hit stuff early/late and a general loss of accuracy, then you know you did something wrong because you have less control than before. Consistency and technique should be your main focus, speed/stamina training in moderation.

1/4 slider streams (like the ones in this map) are best played as if they are 1/2 notes, this is pretty hard tho and usually just spamming through them will do fine.

sliders are 200% easier than circles, assuming you can read them. Always.

having that said, in order to practice reading midstreamsliders, you should play midstreamsliders

Then what position is most comfortable? For you at least..
You'll never get far in life if you keep asking to be spoon fed everything.

a lot of people play with 2 keys next to each other i.e z/x, some like to stretch their fingers outwards on the keyboard and some like to have their fingers closer to their palm.

Not sure if this is related, but I'm trying out different positions so i can single-tap with my wrist. Can someone give me a deeper insight about what really is single tapping with the wrist and how a position can help to achieve that? :D

you move your wrist up and down rather than your finger

doesn't really help with streaming

Progressively....

You would want to prioritize accuracy over speed

on another note
I think that playing autopilot will train your accuracy..
Because autopilot forces you to make accurate hits or miss.
you have to be very accurate when u play autopilot

I use that to train my fingers since my tablet is broken right now...
Its proven to be really really useful
