alternate picking

  1. Lessons and Tab
    Is there a preference between wrist alternate picking and the "rotational" movement of of Troy Grady/Yngwie approach? I tried the Pebber Brown Sarod thing, but that produced a lot of pick noise and other noise from the free floating right hand.

    Back in the day when I first picked up a guitar, there wasn't that much stuff to learn from. Basically, you took out your vinyl and tore the hell out of it playing the same parts over and over and over until you got it. If you practiced, were lucky, and maybe you had some friends that knew...

    Hey everyone. I've been trying to like jazz for at least 6 years now. Maybe 1 out of 1,000 jazz songs ever make my hairs stand up on my neck. I agree that guitarists like Joe Pass and Pat Martino were/are impressive, but is it just me or does the neurotic form sound like complete crap...

    I've played for lots of years and apparently I've been holding my pick the wrong way. A couple of days ago I was at a Guitar Center and this guy helped me out with my picking technique. It seems that I've been holding the pick in such a manner that I don't get proper control. so, now, I hold...

    Here's Frank Gambale playing Dangerous Curves. Notice around 2:02 he starts playing a style that sounds like Mario Bros or something. Anyone know where I can learn this technique? http://www.youtube.com/v/w1MquRso_4I :runaway:

    Hell-O. The first example "kotcc" is galloping chords. I hear this and I don't have a clue how to gallop chords fast. I uploaded a clip so you guys could listen. Is there a certain motion to galloping chords that fast? I usually get caught up on strings trying to gallop that fast, even if I...

    Everyone may have their own reasons for wanting to play fast. Some want to do it for ego, some want to play their idols songs and others just want to incorparate the technique into their musical ideas. Why do I want to learn to play faster? I want to learn to play faster to be able to play the...

    I have some problems with the plucking pattern with the main riff at the start. At the moment I go: up, down, down, up with my right hand, bearing in mind that it's all semi-quavers. It sounds fine but my right hand gets tired out fairly fast with makes me mess after about 20 seconds. I was just...
