    You may have tried this, and I’m sure people get sick of me recommending this, but try slowing down your playing to a point where this doesn’t happen and maybe spend an entire week playing EVERYTHING only as fast as you can play it cleanly. It’s not a loss of a week, spend equal time working on your style and inflection. Things like vibrato, bends, slides, double stops, CHORDS, CHORDS, CHORDS, groove/strumming, fingerpicking, etc. Just focus on recalibration and investment into your own unique style and what you want to accomplish as a guitar player. Now that i’m writing this, it feels like you could take a couple weeks to a month on all this and barely scratch the surface. Most guitar players don’t do this, yet it is the MOST beneficial time you can invest in your playing. It will seem like a small blip of time when you’re done and you will be an entirely different player, for the much much better. I promise I do this A LOT!

    Good luck Vasrely!

    For years I played 2.0 but last year I switched to .73 and LOVE it for EVERYTHING. I can even get great volume playing gypsy jazz with those bad boys. I think I naturally choke up on the pick to get a bit more stiffness when playing faster stuff but then relax a bit for rhythm which feels so much better with .73 than 2.0. I also prefer the brighter tone the .73’s get as well.

    Love this topic btw
