I managed to play from 60bpm to 140bpm today.
120bpm is the most consistent speed I can sustain right now though. It's fun just learning simple chords and glueing them together to create some weird haunting sounds.
Varying between down/upstrokes, picking techniques and first attempts at some licks is just great. At some point I'm completely zoned out and I play by feeling only, but still in beat (mostly).
Strumming patterns are incredible to discover as well.
Can't wait to be consistent and well versed enough to play at speeds like in Panopticon's The Death of Baldr and the Coming War.
