Hey guys. Here’s a super in depth look at what I can currently do. The main goal is to get my crosspicking free, fluid accurate and gnarly fast. So I’ve recorded all of the current texhniques I can do well and the crosspicking as it currently is while I continue to struggle and develop it to be where the rest of my picking is. All other picking techniques are a tiny bit rusty because I’m not spending much time on them until I can crosspick the way I want to. Ideally i’d like to just be able to pick everything in a supinated position without swiping on downstrokes. Anyways enough babbling.
2WPS 3nps PG/MAB Lick Pronated position. The Pronation forces me to use forearm rotation to get the single upstroke on the adjacent string without swiping. It also makes muting extremely difficult to palm mute. Palm muting in this position requires me to extend the pinky like Jason Becker. This is not ideal for crosspicking at high speeds imo but I haven’t spent a ton of time on itas I’ve just discovered how to mute with pronation for myself.
Here it is on clean.
Here I attempt to demonstrate a jason Becker/Josh Christian style of palm muteing with a pronated DSX position. Please ignore the Zeta Gundam playing in the background
Here is the 2WPS Pronated movement in slowmo. Sometimes I swipe on the upstrokes sometimes I don’t. towards the end there’s some on the JB/JC pronated muting from the previous video.
Here’s the USX version ins Supinated position starting on an Upstroke because I cannot get the Andy Wood 9-3 motion.
Here that is in slowmo.
Here’s showing my ability to USX 2NPS in a supinated position
Here’s the slowmo.
Here’s the DSX Pronated version. Don’t care much for it cause I can’t mute it. But I could easily get it as comfortable as it’s USX counterpart.
Here’s the slowmo(skip to 1:16ish)
Here’s my dookie crosspicking. Just can’t figure it out.
Here’s the slowmo.
4 Notes Bass side and 6 Notes all strings:
Lastly here’s fiddling around with Roy Marchbank/EVH tremolo technique testing for top speed.
and here’s the same trying to play multiple notes on 1 string.
I hope this gives enough incite to help me find the golden nugget that i need to complete the puzzle for crosspicking so I can sleep better at night and finally have full creative freedom without feeling hindered by technique. I want to develop a supinated technique that allows me to crosspick/alternate pick any pattern and allows me to also mute as I want to without having to drastically alter the position. Thank you all for the support and I hope this isn’t too much. I just am obsessed and i figure the more detail I can give the better and more accurate advice I can get. Much love dudes!
