I discovered CtC last year and worked through all the videos. Finally got around to making a technique video now that I have a bit more spare time again.
I’ve done one-string picking (quarter notes at 120), a couple of the DWPS exercises (sextuplets at 70) and the UWPS exercise at 110. These are speeds that I can currently play them quite comfortably although on a good day I can go a little faster.
I know my timing and my right hand technique could also use some work, but it’s the picking I’m looking for help with right now! With DWPS I’m never sure if my wrist angle is quite right as I sometimes hit strings while crossing, especially at faster speeds; I find UWPS a little easier but again when I go faster I need to make sure I’m slanting enough to go over the string without hitting it.
One recent discovery I made is that I tend to use a bit of thumb motion at slower tempos, while when I go faster it’s mainly wrist deviation which has quite a different “feel” (discussed in Changing gears w right hand). Since then I’ve been trying to practise the wrist deviation more, since I can clearly go faster with it, although in the video I think I still see a bit of thumb movement.
