New member, in my 50s and grew up loving shred and metal. Big EJ fan. Been playing since teens…wish I had more to show for it! Mostly self taught.
I have a question about something I noticed on the Starting with Speed video. When Troy slows it down, it sounds like there are 2 attacks (or clicks) for each note. It appears the first ‘click’ is when the pick first contacts the string and the second ‘click’ is when the pick leaves the string.
Am I hearing it right? Is this intentional? At speed, it almost seems to fatten up the attack. I can see how it might be good sometimes but not so good at others (like a super sensitive high gainer). Any input appreciated.
