I’m aware of what his advice is and what this thread is about. As I said, I study and speak with regularly. I know his technique inside and out.
My point is that his advice in the video is not for categorical application to electric guitar technique. It has very specific use cases in his own playing, and the two videos I posted show deviations from it. There are reasons for that.
If you’re curious as to why that is, private message me. I can help you understand it better, but he (Anton) doesn’t allow people to publicly post his advice or summaries of his videos. That’s his preference.
Maybe not everything he plays, but he himself would tell you it’s how you practice (quality) with the amount of hours you’re willing to put in. Not how many years you’ve been playing or how old you are.
Thinking you can’t do something because of age is a coping mechanism, and a really lame one at that.
