Alright, hi folks.
I kinda felt guilty for posting some nonsense in today’s “BEST” topics, so I figured I’d start a discussion about something that kinda bugs me for a while.
So this discussion is for people who decided to stick to one style only. It’s based on my own experience as I, a few months ago, decided to stick to 5A and just stop throwing 1A for good (at least for the time being)
Obviously, the main reason is that I like 5A more than 1A, it just feels more natural to me. One of the other reasons is that I just can’t deal with string tension anymore (not saying there’s no string tension issues in 5A, but at least the way I play it, it stays to a playable minimal and it’s easily dealt with)
One of the other reasons is that, to my knowledge, it makes me the only 5A exclusive player in my country (some others do 5A, some better than me even, but it’s not their main style)
And last but not least, the more I focus on 5A, the more my friends who started at the same time, are becoming very good in 1A, there’s no way I could even dream of keeping up now (I know it’s not the point, but still, I like to at least keep up)
Someone brought something interesting to my attention, is that by playing within the limitations of 1A, I’d be able to be more creative and get more ideas in 5A as well, which kinda makes sense, but I’m just not enjoying 1A at all for now.
So my question is the following: Are you also exclusive to one style in particular, if yes, why, if no, why not?
