I know what you're going through and yep, you just have to switched to a more relaxed wrist motion. This will make your picking feel and sound a lot better, but it will take more time to develop -...

Aside from just spending lots of time practising that style, you have to work a lot on relaxation. The tenser your arm, the harder you're working and the less stamina you'll have. Make sure every...

Looks fine, I'm afraid you're going to have to identify the problem yourself. See if there's any common factor the times you get a poor sound and work from there. :)

Are you sure it's the open string and not the 12th fret harmonic?

First of all, properly relaxing the finger should be sufficient, keep practising that.

Secondly, you can use the right hand...

I find a 28in straight fret guitar pretty hard on the hands, but one of guitars is fanned 27-30 and it's much much more comfortable. Can handle pretty much the same tunings and sounds better too! :)

Bang for buck = Agile.

If you want to play that stuff, extended scale is a must, I wouldnt get one below 28in. I sold my old 27in 8 for a 30in 7 and I'm much happier. :)

Personally the theory sounds a bit dubious to me. Generally you train how you want to play with guitar.

On the other hand, picking hard sounds sweet imho so it can be worth practising regardless. :p:
