@Troy (also @Brendan and the rest of the team) A huge THANK YOU for recently creating and uploading all of the new Pickslanting Primer videos. You and the team did an outstanding job. The biggest things that helped me was clarifying not to worry too much about HOW the technique looks, there are more than one ways to skin the cat in terms of pick grip, etc., and providing the easy step by step tutorial on how to set up for USX. Those videos for me solidified a lot of the earlier CTC work and forum readings… So my stubborn @ss took your advice- here is a video of me USX at different speeds to where I am comfortable, but not slow to the point I can get away with stringhopping:
So I feel comfortable doing the table tap on one string at 150/155bpm no problem which is the speeds of stuff I want to play at. The string switching is still my Achilles heel if you will. It’s getting cleaner but not there up to tempo. I did an updated Sold My Soul run up to 140bpm before I fall apart… I feel at times I am swiping and also having a mental hesitation switching strings. Like my commitment to switching isn’t there. Maybe I’m afraid I will miss the next string or be out of sync with the tune…?
Thanks again! BB
