I’ve always had problems breaking through the strings when playing the guitar, so a friend told me to try this death metal riff as a test. So far, my thumb knuckle seems to jut in and out when I play, and I can’t seem to find any other way to play without getting stuck on the strings.
Here are two views of my right hand. Hopefully you can shed some light on what I’m doing wrong. I’m trying to edge pick, but it doesn’t seem to be helping that much. EDIT: I should mention that the main issue is the feeling of a lot of friction when I try to go through all the strings. I know it’s not an issue with the guitar because my friend was able to play this riff on it, and he through the strings like butter, with near-faultless accuracy.
