so i was looking more at this today, and there is the Yngwie kinda harmonic minor descended lick, i mean its not really his , that i do with this technique. however i use directional economy, and pick it with thumb thing, string hopping over the string here by raising my index finger slightly as i am picking with this technique to get the down stroke to clear over the b string to upstroke the d string here. so i think it is possible to dbx with this technique by utilizing the index finger raising and lowering it.
had no idea that’s what was happening until i started analyzing it just now, lmao! when i raise my index finger knuckle above all the other finger knuckles to do it, that’s what it looks like, and it kinda feels like i am ramming something with a horn like a goat, but it’s my index finger knuckle.
so now the moral of all this is i believe Cesario perceives it more from his thumb from what he told me, but i think we gotta learn both as i feel it more in my index. however having learned about rest stroke, the thumb is very important process in all off this because most of this kinda style is flamenco rip off, and they do a lot of rest stroke with the thumb which will build up that mental clarity with this technique to consciously perceive the thumb. however since after seeing the power of also using the index finger to dbx it probably is also important. i think spending some time learning gypsy jazz rest stroke technique maybe helped my mind think more of the thumb when doing this technique cause i use to only perceive the index finger doing all the work, with absolutely no mental coordination link to the thumb whatsoever. even though i was doing it fast, my brain just worked differently, but learning some gypsy jazz tunes using proper traditional rest stroke i think built up that mental connection with my thumb.
and truthfully you don’t even have to do that down stroke just rip that as fast as possible and slide into the note. of course on my classical it doesn’t sound good, but i imagine dod250 overdrive,max gain, slight delay, touch of reverb, it would sound Ah Mazing!
