I’m fairly new around here, I’ve been a member for a little over a month. I’ve loved watching all YouTube videos and I’ve finally gotten around to signing up, I already feel like I’ve learned so much!
I’m working more fully integrating two way pick slanting into my playing. I’m a natural USX player so the first step has been trying to work on DSX playing. I’m starting to get to a place where I feel more comfortable with one way DSX playing, and I feel like with a few more months of targeted practice it’ll feel completely comfortable. But two way pick slanting still feels like I’m doing something wrong. I did a video of the different components and then me trying to put things together.
I’m doing 16th not triplets at 110, a comfortable speed for my USX playing. The one way DSX isn’t 100 percent comfortable, but I can do it well enough. I then did a 6 string two way run which feels pretty uncomfortable, but I can get through it. Finally I tried descending sixes which feels very bad. The first attempt was definitely the longest that I can do it, and the subsequent attempts are more typical, I can do a few repetions and then it chokes up. Is there anything wrong with my fundamental technique? Or is it something I just need to work on? And are there any exercises I could use to target two way pick slanting? Thanks!
