I've been studying Adam Rogers' picking techique lately, it looks really effortless and efficient. I've googled around and it appears that people call it the "Benson technique" since George Benson turns his pick in that direction as well but I think Adam's technique looks a lot more effortless. It feels really wierd to switch to picking like this at first but I'm getting used to it. Having the pick at that angle makes it easier to separate the notes better with less effort, the pick doesn't have to travel as far to clear the strings. The tone also changes a bit and I think it sounds better when using this technique, the notes sound thicker.
Do any of you guys play with this kind of picking technique or have made the switch to this kind of technique?
Here are a few examples of Adam's right hand technique:
