comment Criteria for speeding up when practicing with a metronome
Like I said in my comments to the other answers, "using a metronome to 'push' your tempo faster" is commonplace in guitar-oriented practice. I'm just surprised that it seems I misunderstood something I took for granted for years.

Sorry to be nitpicky, but when can I really say 'this is flawless'? Also, I don't really know what you mean by 'normal' (see my comment on @luser's answer).

comment Criteria for speeding up when practicing with a metronome
I've never really approached 'getting faster' using a 'playing it faster in your head' strategy. The whole 'guitar practice' culture I run into seems to use a 'metronome-first' approach.

To put it simply, let's say I'm playing 'difficult-ish' guitar-oriented metal-or-something (think Dream Theater, Satriani, etc)

comment How do professional accompanying musicians (seem to) figure out songs instantly?
Your answer makes a lot of sense. However, a piece of music is not as spontaneous an event as a clogged pipe or mouth condition. Somebody created it. I just think your answer was too "ultimate" regarding the previsibility of music in general. Of course, the very question I asked implies that this previsibility exists in some degree, though.
