Hi Muris,
First off, I'd like to say you're a bad mutha (shut yo mouf). My question is: When you do those triplets and staccato licks or any speed picking for that matter, what is the angle of your pick in relation to the strings? Are you choked up on the pick so only the point is exposed? I guess what Im asking is, is the plane of the pick parallel with the string or do you have an angle of attack that allows for more speed? Physically I could see an advantage to the pick coming in contact with the string at the radius of the point of the pick rather than the flat. Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

That's a good question but I don't have that simple answer.
When I play over all 6 strings the angle is not the same
because my wrist is resting on the bridge all the time,
I get like parallel on low E and more angled on high E.
However I do change position of my wrist when I'm playing on top 3 strings only per example,
that way I get more parallel and less angled pick attack on the strings.
There are no rules imo, some people do it with more angle, some with less,
my suggestion is to experiment and see what works best for you. smile.gif
