^ Yup that's pretty much the point why he was born, to show the flaw in all of our technique.

Lay your wrist down again, but with the bone nearest the little finger resting on the surface, and the bone nearest the thumb up in the air. Your wrist should be rotated 90 degrees from where it was before, rolled away from your body. Restrain it. You'll have to hold the pen differently, but now if you rotate you will just make dots. The solution is oscillation, the same kind of motion used in knocking on a door or playing piano from the wrist. It is what most people use when writing, also, although usually with more like a 45 degree wrist offset. Now the pen makes long arcs again.


im sorry, even with the lane video i'm having trouble seeing how this is different than rotation. i see how the motion you explained is different from what you called rotation, but it looks like oscillation is just rotation with your arm starting at a different angle. for guitar, i dont know how to translate that, since you're not going to hold the edge of your arm to the guitar and come down on the strings like with a pen. can you perhaps elaborate, or post a very slow video of it if you have that ability.

and on another note, in lane i think theres actually a shredder i somewhat enjoy listening to.

^ You trasnlate it like this. It is like knocking a door, thats the easiest way to think of it, the easiest way to make it work is to have your fingers facing the ground almost parrallel with the ground, so that your up movement of the wrist is the downstroke and your down movement is the upstroke.

I dont have problems so much with wrist and hand as the "top" of my forearm, if you're looking down at the back of your hand like you're typing.

Mostly because i've been trying to get a really chunky pick attack and varied dynamics - basically, its really hard to pick fast and HARD, y'know?

Ok let me ask a question. If Shawn Lane does something, does it mean its right? You guys look up to him as though he's the angel of technique or something, when I think his picking sounds mushy and undefined, and that his whammy use is for want of a better term, ****ing crap. God knows I'd prefer picking like Gilbert's or Di Meola's, even if it is slower.

I agree with you completely. IMO Shawn Lane is an annoying wanker. Can't stand his playing or speaking.

I'd also agree with some of the stuff PoP said, even though I quite like Shawn Lane. Even though Lane's picking is really fast and clean, to me it sometimes sounds like I'm listening to it from miles away. It's partly his tone, but also the way he plays.
I generally prefer the sound of a more powerful, aggressive pick attack, like Gilbert's.

I like Shawn lane's stuff but I prefer other people, I certainly don't look to him as an angel of technique but I would be inclined to agree he has better technique than most.

imo Gilbert and Friedman > world
