My question, in other words, is that should one guitar player change the pickslanting and motion frequently during playing? Or should one guitarist always use one pickslanting and one motion?
Example : I used to be a double escape pickslanter and I use this to play everything. In order to play Eric Johnson’s stuff, I changed from double escape to upwards escape(downwards pickslanting) for almost one year. But sometimes I want to combine phrases like EJ’s pentatonic runs and MAB’s 3NPS into one phrase, which I think I need to use upwards escape and then quickly change to double escape, because I feel not comfortable to play MAB’s 3NPS using upwards escape. In this situation, do I need to spend time equally to practice those two pickslanting? Or should I focus on one pickslanting so that I can work on it better? Do pro guitarists change these pickslanting and motions frequently during playing?
Also, one problem that I have is when I use downwards pickslanting to play on one string( tremolo), the angel between the pick and the string changes from 10 degree to 0 degree when speed changes from 160bpm to 200bpm. In other words, I cannot keep downwards pickslanting when the speed is over 180bpm. I can play some of EJ’s pentatonic runs at 180bpm but I am not sure whether it is downwards pickslanting or not. How can I keep a pickslanting when speed is fast? Do you guys have any suggestion?
Hope that I described my question clearly so that you guys can get what I’m talking about. I’ll upload YouTube video later.
Thank you very much and have a good year.
