Hi Troy. Hey, sorry if I gave the impression that my suggestion to you regarding Bryan some time ago was ignored, that was not my intention at all. I realize there’s a bunch of interesting people out there that are worth discovering and you can’t possibly get to them all. So, my apologies if I came out wrong.
Regarding Bryan, I just decided to mention him because I really find his technique mind blogging in a way that’s very different from most players, in the sense that it’s not only how fast he plays but the actual stuff he plays sounds to me more “impossible” than the more typical rock based shred that, while also extremely difficult to master, seems to me more “guitar-friendly” than what he plays. So, that’s why I’m really intrigued by his technique.
I’ll try to compile some of his older videos and I’ll add them here because unfortunately there’s not a lot of stuff available from him.
Anyway, thanks for all your work throughout the years, and believe me, I tell everyone that your analysis of guitar playing technique is truly the only one I’ve seen throughout my years of guitar playing, that has a structured, evidence based approach to the subject. I would never come to these conclusions by myself without your work and it has improved my playing in the last few years way more than in the 10 years before.
So, a big thanks to everyone behind Cracking The Code!
