i suck at picking. i try to practice at least 2 hours a day, of which most is running scales and sequences at slow tempos (less than 60, sixteenths), focusing on complete relaxation and i am not seeing improvement.
i generally am an economy picker, but i practice alternate and economy picking, and legato in this context. i firmly believe in wrist-based picking (no 'sarod' style a la pebber brown).
my picking is very choppy, uneven, and just uncontrolled for the most part (although this practice has really improved my left hand). i would love to have a smooth style of picking. I guess i am looking fro encouragement :), advice, exercises, etc. anything!
