    I’ll have a lot more time this summer to focus on music, so count me in.

    I sat down and did a little bit of testing of this a while back out of curiosity, and the peak speed I was able to hit accurately on a legato run was between 20-23 notes per second depending on fingers used in the pattern

    It was more of a steady progression. My first ever exposure to rock was listening to The Beatles on the family PC after I found all my dad’s CD files. After that, it was basically going down the rabbit hole into heavier and heavier music. I really liked it, and it felt natural to me, so I would always be trying to find the next heaviest band. From AC/DC I would move to Dio, to Metallica, just going down the rabbit hole. It also sorta moved in a chronological progression too, I would get into more and more modern bands as my tastes evolved.
    But the big turning-point band for me as far as truly getting me into metal was actually In Flames. They were my first real exposure to basically everything you could fit under a “-core” subgenre (which is probably my favorite umbrella of genres).
    Now, 10 years later, metal is my go-to for just about everything. I found some very interesting bands along the way, and my friends always find it funny to go to me when they wanna hear the “heaviest” songs possible. Slowly working on converting them into metalheads too.
