Tips for a fight stick

I have been playing SF4 since it came out last year, and SSF4 since it came out this year. I had always been a Cammy main until SSF4 came out and decided to learn Akuma. I have been playing with him since launch, however with a controller until a couple days ago. I got a TE fight stick at the recommendation of my friend and have been playing for the last 2-3 days with it.

I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for transitioning from the controller to the fight stick that could help. I have already noticed I do not excessively use HP and HK anymore since the other buttons are more easily reachable.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

This helped my transition

What’s this got to do with AKuma. The only advice I can give is go to training and practice a lot. It’s going to take a looong time to get real good.
