Troy: Suppose You Had All The CTC Info When You Were 16 Years Old

Troy, did you say you started playing guitar at 16 years old? If I’m incorrect, then I’ll just say this: Suppose that from the time you started playing guitar you had all the current CTC info available to you somehow.

If you had all that info available to you from the start, how much time do you think you would have needed to become able to play lead guitar at your current technical level?
