I’ve been developing a lot as of lately with my playing, seems it is all falling in place.
Again, time is slowing down a bit for me and I am starting to not only “hear” things, but likewise “feel” things a bit better.
It’s always good to judge ones progress to the progress of others. With this said…where is over-all pick direction going to on your up strokes and down strokes when playing lead?
I’ve really worked on my down stroke direction…I am attacking the string and trying to drive my pick into the sound hole on my down strokes. This is a lot more prevalent on the first 3 strings on my down strokes and on up strokes these 1st 3 stings get attacked from “the under side of the string”.
To me I am getting a lot “cleaner sound” by attacking at an angle so severe. I know I have just about gotten rid of any muted sound in my picking by attacking at these extreme angles.
So what say you? Is this similar to your experiences and attack? Am I totally off the wall here and am I developing bad habits even though it sounds better?
I know when I want to play something really cleanly I concentrate on over emphasizing my attack angle, that’s about all I am thinking about (not the song, it’s just comes out without thinking about it to much).
Let’s hear it.
