well, im trying to learn a song, and in the song you gotta strum really fast on the same string....and when i try to do it my pick always gets hung up on the strings and ****, so i was wondering if theres a way to make it better? also its in standard tuning, im not sure if the string tension has anything to do with it.....and sorry if this is the wrong place to post this

Need to build up strength in your wrists, get it more fluid. Get one of them clamp thingys or squeeze a soft tennis ball

Wrong forum. But make sure to keep your wrist relaxed when picking.



This and you just got to keep practicing.

What song is it?
I recommend holding the pick so that only the tip is showing. The less of the pick makes contact with the strings, the less resistance there will be. And don't be afraid to strum harder.

yeah, it'll probably just take practice to build speed, but keep trying the song you'll get i

I've never had to practice tremolo picking, it was just natural to me.

I also don't hold the pick like anyone I know, most people let their last 3 fingers of their hand wander around behind their hand, my hand is pretty much like all my fingers are aligned with my first finger so that If I looked at my hand position, it would make a circle.

It's hard to explain, I basically hold my pick similarly to Eddie VH
