I m playing on a Gibson and a Godin multiac duet ambiance nylon
My main problem :
Playing a scale starting from e low string to e high string / three notes per string
I try to find a position to be relaxed…
I choosed to be like joscho…
My pick is on the middle of my thumb , my arm is floating with a open hand resting lightly on the guitar…(no pinkie like carl miner)
In this position my pick is naturally in a position of downward pickslanting…so when i do alternate picking my pick offers too much resistance when i switch string below…I use for the movment a rotation of my forearm.
So i tried like Carl Miner…pinkie to be more flat on the string with the pick and a back and forth / flexion extension movment but to gain speed it’s seems impossible to me…
And with the two methods i described it’s always very awkward between/inside the G and B string.
So i tried to anchor my hand on the bridge near the e low string and not moving my forearm only the wrist…I changed the position of my pick more on the tip of the index and thumb like albert Lee. But it’s worth when i want to reach the higher strings…i feel really uncorfortable.
So same thing but anchoring on the bridge between the D and G string. It’s seems to be a little bit better but nothing more.
To finish i tried in each position two way pick slanting and as usual it becomes very difficult on the higher strings B and E.
I play always diagonnally on the strings. Never vertically. ( i notice people do that when they anchor on the two first low strings E and A. It’s ok to play the other one but to avoid muting E and A you have to rest above with your thenar eminence. Descending it’s ok but ascending you have to go acroos and it’s weird)
I am totally stuck !!!
Thank you for your answers !!!
