I’ve a DWPS, trying to model my picking after YJM and EJ. I’ve tried working on 2WPS but I find changing picking mid-sequence incredibly challenging. (Still working on it.)
In the mean time, I’ve been searching for workarounds - trying out pure Economy picking using some of the resources at https://syngates.com/ as well as some SWYBRYD picking I picked up from Marshall Harrison.
One of things I stumbled across when looking into Hybrid picking was this clip of Zakk Wylde and watching his right hand in this clip blew my mind!
I remember there used to be the a full Zakk Wylde instructional named Pentatonic Hardcore on YouTube but it looked like it was taken down due to copyright and though one had been re-uploaded the quality was terrible and it was incomplete.
Trying to learn more about his approach to Hybrid picking I watched some of Zakk’s Guitar World “lessons”. I don’t think Zakk has ever been a great teacher but these videos were truly indecipherable.
Amazingly, I did manage to find the full instructional again on a Chinese website in great quality, so I thought I’d share it as a useful resource to anyone interested! His section on Chicken Picking/Hybrid Picking is pretty insightful and I don’t see many players using this technique like Zakk does!
