Hey guys, I’m new here to Cracking The Code and am extremely knew to using a pick, even though I’ve played guitar for about 10 years. I’ve stumbled upon this site looking for the right way to pick as I was afraid to develop a bad technique. Of course here I soon learned that there are efficient and non-efficient ways and not one right way.
Anyway, in the first videos of Pickslanting Primer Troy advises us to try a tremolo as fast as we can and then use that motion to pick everything and develop it from there. But for me what is not clear is my exact goal. What am I looking for? A tremolo motion that should already be close to my bpm limits in the non guitar exercises? Or simply looking for the best motion I have at the moment?
And as follow up question, when I find this motion, how should I practice it? Should I use it on normal exercises like 1234 and pentatonic scales? Or is there a specific better way to practice these motions? I am trying to be cautious not to practice the wrong way and focus on the best ways to develop my technique.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
