wilmore 6211@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>i recently got the metheny warm up book and it has a lot of spread triad exercises. in one of them he picks down down up for all triads but all the shapes are two adjacent strings for the two down strokes and a string skip for the up stroke. it would work for your g to g/b shapes. i like to practice spread triads through the circle of 4th's using strict alternate picking and staying in one position.<br /> cheers! </p>

cruxtable 6210@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>There's a couple videos/songs now where I've heard picking of open triads in triplets, and I'm trying to figure out how to do it cleanly and quickly in the right hand. Here are the clips:</p> <p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&amp;v=yJYLfBMPuic#t=71s" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&amp;v=yJYLfBMPuic#t=71s</a> (can also be heard in actual recordings - it starts with four picks per chord - ex 1-3-5-3 and then he goes to do 3 per chord)</p> <p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&amp;v=QcETmST9BoY#t=210s" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&amp;v=QcETmST9BoY#t=210s</a> (this clip of metheny blows my mind- just constant 3 note arpeggios of open triads)</p> <p>I can't tell how either of them picking, but I've tried both of these ways, neither of which seemed to be easier than the other:</p> <p>strict alternate picking - so lets say going from G to G/B - strings 6-5-3 to 5-4-2 - you would pick DUD UDU and do that for any set of triads</p> <p>down up-down - alternate picking, but starting each set of three notes on a downstroke - so just DUD DUD DUD etc. This seems easier to pick accurately and hit the strings consistently but harder to play fast and evenly.</p> <p>Can anybody shed light on what would be the best way, or can you tell how these guys like Metheny/Lage are doing it?</p> <p>Thanks-<br /> Paul </p>

david6strings 5517@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>yes i think matt is right. just playing music and transcribing maybe is the best and most funny thing u can do. when you can play 80 per cent of a piece and maybe a phrase just can't sound succesully then you can work on that later.</p> <p>for exemple 1 of the phrases that always seems impossible to me is in the melody of moose the mooche omnibook version. i try to practice that as an exercise </p>

Matt 5514@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>in my experience, i spent a year trying to get perfect technique. i tried every exercise, every thing i thought would work, and i didnt make much progress. now, maybe there were flaws in my practice, but after i started working more with transcription, tunes, hearing music and paying less attention to technique, it improved dramatically. even now, i spend less than 30min a day on tech. i try more to focus relaxation when i play than anything else. </p>

yaclaus 5507@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I prefer alternate picking, since it forces you to think rhythmically. Off-beat equals up-stroke. If a line starts on an off-beat I would also start with up in that situation. However generally I donĀ“t see a problem in using all downstrokes on 8-notes. </p>

silverwater 5504@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Being a product of the Bill Leavitt method books, I started out learning strict alternate picking, and stayed that way for probably ten years. Then I learned how to economy pick, because I'd often cross myself up trying to trying to alternate pick certain lines. But sometimes economy picking can be awkward too.</p> <p>Check this line out and tell me how you'd pick it. (all 1/8 notes, quarter note=240)</p> <p>|--7-|--------6--5---------|<br /> |----|--5---5------8-7-5--|<br /> |----|----6--------------5-|<br /> |----|----------------------|<br /> |----|----------------------|<br /> |----|----------------------|</p> <p>This is from an original composition that I had to learn, so there was no getting out of it for me. I decided the best way to pick it was: up, up down down down, up up down up, up. </p> <p>People define economy picking as "Always pick in the direction of the new string", so this breaks that when I down pick the third note. But even Frank Gambale, in his "Monster Licks and Speed Picking" book strays from strict economy picking when it makes sense to do so (See P. 13). </p> <p>If you do strict alternate picking, wouldn't a line like that cross you up at that tempo?</p> <p>So the answer: Learn both ways, that way you'll have options. </p>

david6strings 5502@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>one rule i read in a book i agree with is: the pick is maked with the wrist and every string switching from the elbow. so basicly there are 4 movements downstroke (gravity makes it for you) upstroke and to preparation elbow movements up and down. lets say you are in first string and you have to play a note on the third string downstroke, well there are two movements, first elbow to place the hand, the the downstroke. as you see it is difficult and this point of view seems too rigid for some people but i think it is the right way to study. later, when you are playing you don't think and mix the elbow with the wrist, no problem. </p>

cruxtable 5498@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Why do you keep referring to staccato and legato? While alternating vs economy can definitely have a staccato/legato impact on your sound, it's really the player who decides how to sound. You can alternate and still sound legato, a lot of that is in your left hand, but saying someone plays more legato doesn't really tell me anything about what their right hand is doing.</p> <p>I think for now I am going to keep at it with economy, since it's already natural for me to do descending, but I'm still wondering whether those guys are using strict economy or alternating approaches in their right hand.. </p>

jorgemg1984 5496@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I have seen them same video, Kurt playing arpeggios with alternate picking. Tried it and guess what: to me feels much more natural than sweep picking (or economy picking or speed picking, that thing has so many names). Gilad is using much more legatto now than some years ago but I think Kurt is still the one who uses more of that - just listen "View from Moscow" from "The Remedy". Even when I use legatto I alternate a lot, its what works best for me. I may sometimes use only down strokes but its really rare.</p> <p>Another important thing is that these guys "hide" their pick really well, specially Monder. Sometimes it feels legatto but its actually alternate stacatto with a barely noticeable attack. I remember once Kurt saying he always practiced stacatto at home but on gigs and records he used legatto a lot. But I think jazzacast55 gave a goo advice, try them all and use them all if you can :) </p>

jazzacast55 5495@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Pretty sure Kurt does a mixture, not strict alternate, same for Moreno mixture of picking and legato, Gilad plays more legato then anything else from what I've noticed, Lage Lund uses economy picking for sure, more then the rest at least.<br /> Don't lock yourself in to one or the other, some lines are easily played as economy or sweep, then there is the effect factor, how you want it to come out, stacatto or legato? use your ears and I would suggest practicing for say half an hour with a metronome and try playing constant 8th notes for as long as you can with out stopping, try it with triplets as well, don't worry about scales or tonality just play constant notes for as long as you can with out stopping or say 16bars.<br /> What ever technique you naturally go with to play constantly then I would suggest that. </p>

silverwater 5454@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I know exactly what you're talking about when you mention attacking each string vs. one fluid motion. I think it comes down to how fast you're playing (separate attacks for slower speeds and one motion for fast speeds). </p> <p>On the same subject, do you ever find something can be harder/easier to sweep pick depending on what you're doing in the left hand? I've come to notice that half of the time when I think the problem is in the right-hand, it's actually in the left.</p> <p>Like this is easy: x-x-10-9-8-7 (and down)</p> <p>But something like this can trip me up: x-x-5-6-5-5 (and down)</p> <p>...even though the right hand motion should be exactly the same. I also think there's something about having a different finger used for each string helps your brain to coordinate the movement between both hands better.</p> <p>By the way, I highly recommend Shaun Baxter's Guitar Gym for all things economy picking. I can send you some stuff if you post your email address. </p>

arewolfe 5452@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Making a sweeping motion when there are strings to skip is definitely tough... I can't do it nearly as smoothly as when the strings are all adjacent. I usually alternate pick lines like that, unless I'm specifically practicing downstrokes only.</p> <p>I think it's OK that you're doing a slight downward motion to attack each string, instead of one fluid motion. If you practice it enough repetitions and slowly enough I think it's possible to get it to become fluid. </p>

Matt 5444@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>i used to have a pretty big problem with picking too (not that i dont now, but it&#39;s improved so much). i found that when using any motion, most of the tension came from the position of my wrist, so look into that. try to relax your wrist as much as possible. </p> <p>in terms of practice, just go slow and if the tension is there at slow tempos, switch something. i remember reading and believing that if felt tense at first because it was new, but that&#39;s not true, or at least for me.</p> <p>to practice crossing strings, i wrote out the (i believe) max permutations of arranging three notes on three different strings and have practiced doing them as triads, stacked fourths, etc. i also did permutations of four notes with two notes on one string and one note on the other two strings, and i found having those to practice helped my picking across strings. </p> <p>hope this makes sense. i again claim not to be a technique prophet but those are my thoughts. </p>
