I recently got really into Eric Johnson’s playing and I decided to develop nice USX wrist motion.
Before discovering that my primary motion was DSX elbow i’ve been playing with weird form of USX for solid half a year or even more probably. My motion at the time consisted of doing downstrokes with wrist and upstrokes with forearm. Even though the escape was great it didn’t really have much capability in speed. So it’s pretty natural for me to play licks that use upstroke escape since i have them memorized.
Now that I have acces to the primer I wanted to give it a go and played a little bit with wrist USX for a few days before posting this.
Here are some of my results:
The hardest thing for me now is playing pentatonic fives up to speed but I belive practicing it and practicing restrokes will help.
What do you think about my form?
