Picking Styles

There are probably hundreds of different picking styles.

Which is the most popular. Or which style is used the most?

Re: Picking Styles

The usual way is to anchor your hand somewhere, you can play relaxed and move your wrist to pick or stiffen up and move your elbow to pick, playing stiff like that is really only for extreme fast pickers like petrucci and cooley. If you work in those guidlines, you can make your own comfortable style.

Re: Picking Styles

Just don't try to hold your arm like Hendrix. I have no idea how he was able to do that. It hurts me everytime I try.
