Yeah, 'teke's stream compilation is very good for that, atleast it was for me.
Once you can handle almost all the streams there, move on to chipscape or something.
Also I found out that I stream much better using wider key positions, c and s for me, instead of z and x.

chipscape
I think it's not really that good for streaming, because you have to single tap 1/2 more than streaming itself
I suggest someting like:
Humanoid - MENDES
Shiraishi - Shinsekai

And yeah, hand position and slim keyboard like fartownik said helps a lot

I tried using different finger combinations. I noticed my index and ring finger could keep a more consistant streaming speed, but it felt weird, and was a bit slower when compared to using my index and middle finger.

I also tried different keys. I used to use ZX a lot, then switched to SD, then kinda went all over the keyboard going to 56, GH, Spacebar and Alt, etc... I'm back to ZX now.

I now just usually do some insane streaming practice right before going to bed.

With streaming, idk if I'm really consitant with it or not. Like there is times where I'll hit every stream perfectly in a song, then there are times where I can't even do the first stream on that same song. I guess I need to work on timing? Idk. Usually when I see a bunch of beat's right on top of each other, I don't count how many beats are there or anything, I just sort of spam Z and X. I guess it works out...

As for individual finger speed, my index and middle finger on my right hand are noticeably faster then the index and middle on my left hand. Problem is, I can't seem to do any mouse clicking at all without loosing accuracy :/

This. Or just practice on Mei, Shinsekai (not aho's version), or DT some streamy maps.
When you stream, I find it better to stream with the keyboard only, as you can focus on the rhythm for your left hand (assuming you're right-handed) and just move with your right one.

This will of course lead to imbalances in your two hands' accuracies and stream hitting speed.

play streams until your muscles give you a hard hard hard pain.

-> improve

play stepmania.

much better training than any osu map, especially because you can slow it down and speed it up .5-1.5x

but if you insist, play maps on half time and practice using 2 fingers until you know the rhythm of the song, then do it full size. Play maps that you know you can stream properly then increase the BPM slightly and play a map of similar bpm.

we are talking about people who have trouble with streams here, not people who can 300 a full 260 BPM stream with more than 50 notes.

Press keyboard soft and fast, make sure that your fingers speed are keep constant for long stream. You will discover the typing speed craftsmanship after that. :idea:

Finger weights? 8-) or just practice streamy maps.

this or take a lil 5 minute break, and keep on berserking until you gotta sleep, then wake up and repeat for the whole day.


my own song choice I picked in 5 seconds for noobies:

1: Syrsa - Mad Machine [Champion]

Fun 270bpm map, weak 180 bpm on half time, but I guess it will do before you attempt 220bpm.

2: 07th Expansion - rog-unlimitation [AngelHoney]
07th Expansion - rog-limitation [SOLO]

A few maps I can come up with, they're only 220bpm, so keep on trying to fc these maps, until you can you go on to faster stuff.

3: Mad Machine again, no half time lol. 270bpm is kinda fun.

4: DragonForce - Heroes of Our Time [Knight] + Double Time

Yay! 300bpm <3

there's better choices, and choosing different maps would be best.
