I have a kind of weird problem, I dont know if its technique, but Ill put it here anyway: I've just started trying to "shred", (more like playing solos) but it seems like there are just some things I cannot play at all. For example, I cannot for the life of me play Eruption. I've been working on it for quite a while, and have gotten basically nowhere. Yet, there are other songs, like Eugene's Trickbag or Mr. Crowley, that are generally considered more difficult to play, but I am able to pick up really quickly. Anyone got any ideas?

I angle it; most guitarists recommend that.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

245 x 4 = 980

980 / 60 = 16.33(Repeating)


So 16.3 nps.

I angle it as well. I personally find it a bit difficult to play most songs when the pick is directly parallel with the strings. But meh....that's just me. And we all know I aint anything special on guitar

When you say parallel...do you mean that when the pick hits the string the entire surface of the tip makes contact at the same time, or do you mean you hold the picks tip not straight down on the string, but instead facing slightly towards the neck of the guitar?

^I think he meant the first one. I'm not sure though. I'm tired and having a bit of trouble interpretting what you are saying.

Sorry, I know it's confusing, lol.

Basically I think I'm asking do you mean: Holding the picks tip perpendiclar to the strengths length (as in pointing straight down onto the guitars body)

or do you mean holding the side of the pick facing parallel with the string.

We mean keeping the pointy end facing toward the pickups, but slightly turning the entire pick (angling) it so the side of it 'slices' the string.

Like in this pic:



One side of his pick is closer to the floor than the other.

Maybe Vai's boney hands are just a side-effect of being awesome. You know, like GibsonSG's weird breathing

Okay thanks for the clarification. Nice pic too lol.

Speaking of hands, I remember a while back I posted an audio clip of my friend shredding and then explained how I only had 4 fingers on my left hand and posted a pic and edited out the middle finger lol. This was on a different forum btw but everyone was like OMG UR SO AWSUM.

I angle it. I have no idea, how one can pick without angling it.

^Can you pick fast when you have the pick parallel to the strings?
