Some real good shots of Papa Het’s picking hand here with full view of the outward escapes (or whatever we’re calling them).


Nice find.

Re: what to call it, I just think of it as DSX. Because even though it’s not alternate picking, the picking motion still follows a roughly “downstroke escaping” path, as opposed to USX players who do repeated downstrokes, where the upstroke will follow more of the usual diagonal upward path.
