Hi - I’m a newbie, just diving in to the world of wrist mechanics. Here’s a couple of videos:
upstroke escape, trigger grip side view slow motion:
and normal speed:
a few things:
-traditionally, i’m a shameless string-hopper - trying to break that habit. i tend to be pretty stiff-wristed.
-i can’t do this any faster without my muscles tensing up and veering in to string-hopping territory. this is all still pretty new to me; i’ve been playing a long time, and i play a lot, literally every day - so the grooves are worn in pretty deep. is this normal? or is the fact that i can’t go any faster an indication that something isn’t lined up quite right?
-i watched the explanation for downstroke escape, but for the life of me i don’t understand how to do the pronation version of that technique (ie, the version where you don’t change your forearm alignment). help?
in terms of goals, i’d like to loosen my wrist, i’d like more of my playing to come from my wrist in general. i play a lot of rhythm guitar too - that’s been an area of special interest lately. (in fact, is there any content on the site that addresses funk rhythm playing? there should be!)
thanks for your time!
