i've been thinking a lot about my picking technique lately because it's been causing a lot of problems. the problem is:
i can economy pick naturally going from high strings to low strings, but going from low to high i have problems, and my tendency is to alternate pick. i think that's backwards from most people. i want to be able to economy pick going down the strings more naturally and accurately so i can play faster and cleaner, and i could spend more time with the metronome, but it's tedious sitting in front of the metronome playing scales and i'm not sure if it's really helping.
