Best way to speed pick?

Post by MisterLutherMan » September 1st, 2018, 6:32 am

Hi there,

I am a primary fingerstyle player, and am looking into the world of faster playing. I was on Reddit and saw this video on speed picking:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiDHw9i ... e=youtu.be

I've crossed referenced this video with some others on YouTube and the points the instructor makes seem legit, i.e. slanting the pick slightly, alternate picking (obviously), and practising the string skipping quite a lot.

I want to know what your experiences are with speed picking, and if you have any other tips on doing it?
Take it or leave it, the shadow is always there.
Holding your hand.
With a glass of ice cold lemonade in the other.
Listening to reggae music. 
What more do you want?
