I recently picked up a monthly subscription for CtC and I’m currently working my way through the Pickslating Primer. I just finished experimenting with the motions and found that Forearm-Wrist was the most comfortable for me, however, I’m still experimenting with pure wrist motion.
So now I’m working on the Eric Johnson lessons in the Pickslating Primer, more specifically, Lesson 2 - Pentatonic Sweeping.
My question is: how fast should I be before moving onto the other lessons? Should I reach close to Troy’s speed (16th notes at 180bpm) before moving on? Or should I think about this differently and perhaps learn everything and then work on speed after? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
