Hello everyone. My tag is DankPW. People can call me DP if they want,I’m 23 and grew up in the deep south of alabama and louisiana. Played guitar for around 10 years, but quit for about a year and a half and came back last February. Was gigging professionally before that but depression hit hard as well as becoming a drug addict which made things even worse for me. But decided to take up scholarships for a local community college for guitar, lost 80 pounds of fat since then, quit everything that was killing me, and went back to doing the only thing I truely love which is guitar. I’m excited to learn more from you guys, Troy’s videos helped me hugely with getting back to where I was and all I want to do is keep improving.
I mostly play in cover bands rn, mostly hard and classic rock and my family is from new Orleans and lived there until katrina, so I grew up with jazz and soul and love playing it.
If there is anything I would like to ask to you guys though it would probably be what do you guys think about circle picking? Because I notice that when I dont think I use it alot more then I thought. Also would like some advice for improving my legatos, learning a more technique based way of thinking about it I think would help me I think. But it seems that troy forums are more focused on methods of picking which I’m fine with.
