Hi folks - just sayin’ hello, found troys vids a fair while ago - but never got the time to setup a account till today!
Totally love this site and all of troy’s amazing work - it’s like nerdy guitar heaven.
I’ve been playing for 36 years - mainly shred , thrash and speed stuff, I could always play fast >12nps after my first year - but only this year have I figured out the perfect picking technique that covers all the bases for me - hopefully i’ll post a vid of it sooonish!
My fave guitarists are (in no particular order):
Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, Gary Moore and Robert Fripp.
My goal is to play 3 note per string runs across the 6 strings in one second - ala 18nps - I know unless I channel Shawn lane it’s gonna be difficult - I can currently reach about 15nps ascending and 13 descending with my novel DWPS technique. I can also play Paul Gilberts trade mark swiping lick (sneaky huh!!) without swiping at 15nps. And it’s only taken me 36 years - hah
