Hi guys! I'd like to share a little thing with you all. Maybe most of you already know it.

In my early (guitar) days I used to be a shredder (shame on me, I know D:). In my research of a clearer sound for every note, I've found out that inverting the picking is quite useful. Example:

X                    To play these notes, usually we would play is down/up/down. Skipping ropes would create some problems. Instead, if we play 

X                    Up/Down/Up we would found the pick ready to change string without problems. While studying, I've found this technique quite useful

X                    while playing be-bop solos.





I think many of you already know about it, especially metal player. But, you know, I'm fresh new here and I just need a way to start posting :) hope you'd find it useful.

I can't pick very well as gunner said, I make mine click like crazy! I am unsure how to angle the pick well and that causes a lot of mishaps, whether to angle it down towards the ground or up towards the sky! thank you for this. it'll be helpful just wish the forum was bigger there is about 6 or so in total as it's dwindled now sadly!


  thanks for the share!
