blink.gif :S ohmy.gif use the side of the index finger?
im useing the flat
is that a bad habit 2 ?


I'm going to post a video explaining exactly what I'm talking about. I think you're holding the pick the same way I am, which is one of the many correct and acceptable ways, but my question is more about wrist involvement in picking. I won't say too much more, once this video get's accepted to youtube I'll post it and you can see exactly what I'm talking about. smile.gif


Ok EDIT: First off, there's probably a slightly better forum for this but I suppose I could say "practicing problems" Here's a link to a video I made a little bit ago showing exactly what I'm talking about

Thanks a bunch for the help!

Having problems with video's loading? Check your software. I have a program called zonealarm that was making video's either not load at all or load slowly. It took me a little while to figure this out, so if you've got any kind of software that monitors your incoming data from the internet, allow GMC to send data or disable the program :)

Nice, I didn't see that video. It helped me with the wrist/hand question but I'm still wondering if people loosen their grip on the pick when picking faster, or just picking at all really.

THIS is a very good video, because it shows how to NOT hold the pick and how to hold it best

How does having a closed fist decrease you accuracy? I've never had a problem with that.

I would think that it is because if you close your fist, your hand wont be relaxed, and you'll also use some unnecessary strength, which can impede your accuracy due to muscle tension.

Thats a really good example, I changed to that style yesterday and have already noticed improvements. It takes some getting used to but after a couple of runs up and down a scale it was second nature smile.gif

Man, sorry to tell this but, it has nothing to do with the pick size wink.gif I am using Jazz III and don't have any problems with anything - it's a great pick really! MAB is the guy who is using Jazz III his whole life and he got some insane string skipping chops smile.gif

Usually it's not gear that keeps us away from some skills - it's ourselves who don't work on it enough smile.gif
I would suggest you staying with Jazz as it is really great pick for both riffing and soloing smile.gif

After watching the Paul Gilbert video, I realize that I've been picking flat and not at an angle like he recommends. The method he showed also helped me get a better sound out of my pinch harmonics!

Thanks for the post!
