It’s amazing how you can get better at stuff like that just by utilizing another technique. I’m kind of the same way too. I struggled with alternate (and still do kind of) but once I learned economy picking it all just clicked for me. It felt natural to me and everything. Now hopefully since I can do that maybe alternate picking will be easier for me. So thanks for reminding me about that dude lol 1 person likes this January 9, 2019 at 1:39 pm #182974 Ezequiel RomankoParticipant yeah matt i feel the same way, its like you totally forget how to do alternate picking so you have to learn it again so the bad habits you had with that technique are magically erased haha 0 likes Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
