Re: new 8 string + new camera = buffoonery
He shares the same picking technique with me... the advantage is a more controlled aspect of precision. Basically, you can use your wrist and forearm muscles to stabilize your picking rather than moving around a whole lot and risking some slop. The best example of this is Michael Romeo... it usually appears that he's not even picking the majority of the notes he's playing.
But, then again, there's many other excellent techniques, so I don't know why I just rambled for no reason...
...but I'm definitely considering getting this guitar. I do like the fact that the first production 8 string is a Prestige. Definitely a selling point in my eyes.
