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

or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

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.

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.

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.
