Been playing guitar since I was a teenager and always loved guys like Paul GIlbert, Malmsteen, EVH etc. My picking, which I was always taught should be from the wrist and sort of evolved, had its ups and downs etc over the years. I’ve never been as furious as a picker as I wanted to be and after returning to the instrument after a 3 year hiatus I decided to give CTC a go because I’ve been grinding to try and improve my picking but hitting walls and feel like I’m going no where except building tense playing with no real speed developing. Years back I would say my playing was around 130-150bpm at its fastest, but very inconsistent. I’ve never utilized any tremolo type of technique really until watching Troy’s videos and testing speed and which technique I’m using. I was pretty surprised because when I do preform the tremolo technique I feel like it looks and feels like the motion is originating from me elbow with some slight wrist motion, but I don’t think the speed of the picking is dependent on the wrist at all. I’ve been doing this over and over and before I start introducing bad habits I wanted to post it up so you guys could tell me what you thought I was doing and hopefully lead me in the right direction of how I should be trying to apply this and I guess “forget” my prior style of picking which was getting me almost nowhere but has become second nature. I was able to get this going at pretty fast speeds (sometimes faster than what I recorded), but am inconsistent at maintaining or just turning on the max.
