Picking Motion Tutorials
Get started with efficient picking motion using these targeted instructions.
One of the most powerful tools for instrument technique learning is speed. If you can do a motion quickly, with minimal feeling of physical strain, then the motion you’re making might very well be worth perfecting through more deliberate practice.
In this section we’ll give you specific instructions for performing a tremolo using the most common efficient picking motions. We’ll also show you how to translate the performance from your joint motion tests directly to the strings using the actual picking motions that those tests are based on.
