Hi to everybody!
I bought the first seasons episodes in 2013 (and later all the other seminars…) but to be honest I never dig into the material, as the details explained by Troy were too many and I could not follow all the different aspects while playing… moreover I was into jazz improvisation studies and I was already working in mapping the geometries of scales, arpeggios and target notes and my brain buffer was already in overflow!
Now after 6 years, considering that my fluidity while playing still needs a lot of improvement and that it is more important to play well nice lines than being able to map all possible scale and arpeggios over the fretboard, I decided to dig the monumental work that Troy did regarding guitar technique.
I discovered I am an UWPS so to be able to play freely lines I should develop also the capability to play with DWPS.
I am actually working on the pick slanting primer intro clip that as far as I understood is an DWPS lick.
I can play it more or less well till 110 bpm, from 120 bpm on it get worse, sloppy and I miss notes. I’m trying to angle the pick in a DWPS way, mainly changing the orientation of my wrist and having my fingers touching the body and the higher strings of the guitar in opposition to my, more natural, UWPS position that has the thumb/palm resting on the upper part of the guitar.
I am studying also the videos about wrist and elbow but it needs quite a lot of time and I prefer to practice.
Do you have any suggestion in order to boost my improvements?
I know it takes time but I just want to make sure I am working in the right way…
Thank you all!
