I’m making good progress with the above picking movement thanks to Troy’s excellent instructional videos, and I understand why Troy mentions it’s slightly easier to do when using large flexion like in the gypsy technique.
I’m a massive Bonamassa fan, and he definitely appears to use the wrist/forearm technique - but with hardly any wrist flexion at all or even much supination. (see video below at 4:15).
Does anyone have any different thoughts on what picking movement he’s using here?
He is also able to do the 5’s pattern using pure alternate picking, any advice on how to quickly switch between USX and DSX in the space of just one note? Lots of examples in the video below around 5:45.
