sourmash Posted January 20, 2004 Share Posted January 20, 2004 Once again I have hit an obstacle and am really having a hard time getting past this. I have been taking lessons and I really am learning alot about reading and general playing. This week I had some stuff to work on that has chords consisting of like say the 2-3-4 middle strings. My teacher showed me a way to learn how to play this with where you basically dig deep in the strings to get it to hang up on the say 1st string in order to avoid what he said many do that pulls the pick away from the strings so as to pass over the 1st, says it cuts down on the volume of the strings in the chord series. I hope I have described that correctly enough. This new technique is really giving me fits and I am wondering if it has to do with the angle that I have been used to for picking chords? Anything you can give me to help this out will be much appreciated. I have been practicing this technique like a mofo but it is really getting me frustrated. When I try to do it this way, sounds like arpeggios. Maybe a lighter pick will help? I generally use 1.00mm. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
