Amazing picking - wrist or elbow/ forearm?

Hi everyone

Found this video and was very impressed. Thought I’d share. He appears to be using a range of right hand picking options. But when he goes to hyper speed is that wrist or forearm etc.?

Thanks!

When he goes to high speed, it’s pretty obviously an elbow movement based picking style.

Yeah, I can’t really see any forearm… but who knows. Most of the high speed alt picking is elbow of course, but I’m betting there is some wrist deviation that is still at play.

Yep agreed. Elbow obviously involved. Was trying to differentiate it from just wrist etc and highlight forearm movement. Have updated thread title accordingly.
Thanks for responses!

Very impressive playing, and all in one take !
I like his vibrato too.
