I’ve been practicing sweep picking for a few years now and something clicked: my fingers seem like they’re effortlessly ascending and descending the patterns I’ve burned into muscle memory.
I’ve come to realize that I don’t have that feeling of no-tension when performing legato or alternate picked runs, but I’d love to.
Lately I’ve just been trying to run different 3 nps scalar legato lines and focusing on staying relaxed, but it feels like I’m always struggling with a lot of tension…and being conscious of it causes more tension, even when I slow it down to a snails pace.
Have any of you dealt with this and overcome it? Do any of y’all have any tips on frethand finger relaxation?
I at least know it’s physically possible…just can’t seem to get it to click outside of sweep patterns. Pardon the rambling and thanks in advance!!!
