Smoother picking motion?
Hi there. I have recently been practicing my left/right cordination and using a metronome to go chromaticly up the fretboard. Now im not that fast, i practice at the moment on about 92bpm and playing 4 notes per beat. Its not fast, but if i go higher im likly to make mistakes.
I use a normal alternate picking motion, and use Dunlop .71's (purple ones).
After a while of playing i seem to naturally get into a pattern of just moving over the string, rather than digging in to it.
But are there any other things i can do to make the attack on the strings smoother, therefore giving less resistance when moving across the strings? I try to somtimes hold my plectrum at an angle so it slices diagonaly, but any other things would be great.
