GMC Forum _ CHILL OUT _ What Playing Method Most Shows In Your Style?

Posted by: shredmandan Jul 18 2007, 06:54 PM

Hi Everyone
Im interested to know what methods of playing show most in your style?For example i would have to say i use double picking more than anything else .If you had to pick from sweep,alternate picking,artifical and natural harmonics,tapping,legato ect which would you say you use the most in your guitar playing.Ofcourse many of us love them all but if you could only do one which would you pick?? smile.gif

Legato - mainly because it is what I have been playing all these years, and I am making some good progress in that. Other shred techniques are coming along but more slowly.

Hard to say, alternate speed picking ,finger picking and chicken picking are my top 3 smile.gif

Legato.

Id say sweeping, although its not those Warp Speed sweeps, yet wink.gif

my tapping is decent, but not very good, legato is not good at all. And im working on alternate picking. So i guess it would be sweeping.

Tremolo picking and lots of legato. Although i got the 3 string sweep down, i just need to pack some speed into it more.

Tremolo picking is very simple: Tremolo Picking is very fast Alternate Picking in 1 note/fret

yep pretty much explains it. Its big on the early hardcore punk/thrash/corssover movement in bay area and florida death metal in the 80's

What shows most in my playing is probably Legato, Sweeping, And Tapping, I like how they all have very smooth sounds to them, and they all can be linked together very well.

Well, you can just play the notes, or you can play the notes with feeling, using a bend here, a slide there, a slight pause here, a quiet note there ... phrasing is about how you inject feel into the notes, and it is a very important skill, especially for slower songs.

Alternate picking for me! Put I love ALL techniques! biggrin.gif

Lately my playing has been very Roo-like with fast legato riffs mixed with some other various techniques...also a lot of AP

Posted by: Anastasio123 Jul 21 2007, 10:07 AM

Mostly Legato and AP
