Right hand trill picking technique (JM & SRV)

I'm looking to learn how trill pick, wondering if anyone would share some advice on how to approach learning such a technique and any bad habits not to get myself into.

I don't know many players who use this technique, I know John Mayer uses it a lot in his live Gravity solos, I do believe it is something he picked up from Stevie Ray Vaughan..

Between 6:55 - 7:14.

Just wondering if anyone knows any other players that use this technique and if you have any advice about how to have a good technique while performing it, aka, is it all in the wrist movement, or would you put some arm movement into the motion? What thickness of pick would you use?

Thanks.

Link didn't work, try again.

Also, for the record, I have never heard the term "trill picking" before; I don't think it's an actual thing.

Well, for the record, I don't quite know what to call it. When you see a working link you will have a reference to what I'm talking about before you come to the conclusion that I don't know what I'm talking about.

I didn't say you don't know what you're talking about, I said I didn't think that term had any meaning because I've never heard it before, you're taking this awfully personally.

Also... broken link again.

I think the word trill is usually used for orchestra instruments and vocalizations. but assuming you are looking for the same effect on guitar you first need to learn alternate picking, hammering on, and pulling off. speed is necessary as that is the concept of trilling. once you learn to alternate pick well it essentially all comes down to left hand technique

Keep in mind that trills are done with your left hand, is a technique that can get you tired very quickly and the most effective way to develop this technique is to do some speed variations, from slow to fast and vice versa several times.

Try to develop "stamina" doing this exercise for periods of time, like 30 seconds or a minute at the time, then rest for a minute or 2 and do it again.
