I had my neighbor come over and film my picking hand. I’ve had problems with the pick getting stuck on the string on the upstroke. It’s hard for me to make the pick glide smoothly through the strings on both the downstroke and the upstroke. I also sent these video links to Chris Brooks whom told me in an email to do this.
I would like you to look at the four clips and tell me how I’m doing. I basically adopted two methods of picking in the videos. Where I’m picking the treble string I’m just using my thumb and forefinger to push the pick back and forth through the string.
The other method where I’m picking the Low E string I’m using more wrist and forearm (even though you can’t really see that in the video).
If you feel I’m doing something wrong or even if I’m doing something good please post your observations.
