Hey gang. Been playing for 35 yrs, and was always under the impression I simply could not alternate pick fast. I’m quite decent at playing fast using legato, pull offs, some economy picking, but have always been frustrated by the major whole in my game- fast, accurate picking. I’ve paid for/tried literally every type of “speed picking lesson” out there with little success. I was resigned to the fate the I was “different” and had some physical thing preventing progress. Troy’s methodologies and lessons quickly showed me my issue pretty quick- I’ve been string hopping the whole time and that’s been my issue. I went through the primer, and my most comfortable tremolo style is the “Aldrich forearm wrist blend with USX”. The problem is incorporating this into my playing. I can tremolo quickly, but slowing it down to make it functional feels like learning to walk all over again. I keep falling back to a 35 year bad habit of string hoping. Any advice as to how to “relearn” and slow down the tremolo and repurpose as an efficient alternate picking technique. Any recommendations on exercises? It’s really frustrating!!!
Thanks in advance,
