Economy picking just means you are picking in the direction you are moving. You use alternate picking until you change strings.

So in that context I'd play that lick:
d-u-d-d-u-d-u-d-u-d-u-d

Why didn't he take reasonable steps to find out why he wasn't being sentenced? If he had won 200 million in the lottery do you think he'd just wait around for 13 years without making a single inquiry?

That may have nothing to do with quality, if that guitar doesn't use a scarf joint there is short grain in the headstock which weakens it. I've heard of Gibson headstocks snapping, if something is...

Why does it cost so much to make a violin?

Holy shit you weren't kidding, a Google search and seemingly regular people are talking about a 5k violin not being good enough and considering a 20k one.
