Picking Techniques - Motion Study

Back in the Seventies, Al Di Meola recalled going to the legendary Les Paul's house and played for him. Les put his face close-up to Al's right hand for about an hour to study Al's speed picking motion!

And Troy has gained recognition in his work with some well known guitarists agreeing to let him film, discuss and analyze their techniques.
