I’m working on improving/experimenting with my picking mechanics (pronating my forearm, curling my index finger, slightly adjusting my grip) and one thing I’m really struggling with is forming these things as new habits. I can utilize the new techniques well while I’m consciously focusing on my right hand but if I try to play through something without focusing on my right and the specific changes then it reverts to the old ways.
I did some searching in the forum and found plenty of scenarios where people mention similar issues but they all seem to get diverted to “is the new thing you’re trying to do the right thing or even necessary?”. I’m pretty sure I’m moving in the right direction with the things I’m trying and either way, any change I try to make at this point will likely encounter the same problem so I think the question is valid on its own.
Does anyone know of ways to quickly form new habits or over ride old habits? I think conventional wisdom says to just keep practicing while focusing on it and eventually it’ll become the new habit but I have this awesome forum of experienced guitarists at my fingertips so I thought it would be a good idea to see if anyone has a better solution.
