I’ve been working on USX wrist motion for about two weeks now. I’ve diligently studied the Pickslanting Primer and followed it’s instruction as best I can. But I’m just not getting there.
So I’m looking for feedback. I’m likely doing something very wrong and repeatedly doing it…and without knowing it. I hope it’s obvious to you.
Please save any positive feedback (if any) for last.
Here’s my attempt using trigger grip:
Here’s my attempt using side pad grip (which is what I’ve been using for decades so more comfortable to me):
My goal is to develop a fluid, efficient wrist motion that enables me to play 16th notes at speeds above 150pm.
But I have to be honest - I’ve watch several “Technique Critique” videos and none of them have motions this ugly. So you’ve been warned.
But hey…this exercise has forced me to create a Youtube account, forced me to record myself playing, and now forced me to put it out here for all to see. Because I want to get better.
