Hi all, I’ve been a member for a little while now but this is my first post.
I’m having trouble maintaing a smooth motion when playing passages that quickly alternate between palm muted and open notes.
I find it really difficult to achieve anything close to the speeds I’m capable of when an entire line is either muted or open.
A simple example would be something like “0-5-8-0-5-8-0-5-8” where only the ‘0’ notes are palm muted. My picking motion starts feeling similar to the bounce you feel when stringhopping and it completely throws me off.
Does anyone have any advice or tips that might help me with these sorts of lines?
