Greetings fellow CTC forum members,
I’ve been watching Troy’s videos for quite some time and finally got around to joining the site during Covid.
I’ve been playing guitar for around 30 years and like many here, have not been able to reach the speeds I’d like. My goal has always been to be able to play like my favorite players, Warren DeMartini, George Lynch, Randy Rhoads, Uli Jon Roth, Gary Moore, Eddie Van Halen, etc… I’d love to be able to raise the speed limit even higher and include Yngwie and Paul Gilbert.
I’ve gone through the various tests in the Picking Primer and after posting a few pics on here of my pick grip (which was formerly at an awkward angle) and spending some time correcting it, I’ve now spent some time working on tremolo picking.
I hope my videos are sufficient to critique my technique. I’ve included one at speed and then at slo mo.
I’m curious to hear what you think of the mechanics of my picking and look forward to getting feedback.
Thanks in advance for having a look. I appreciate it.
