Okay so I have an injury on my left wrist meaning I can't play for a couple weeks. In a desperate attempt to not go crazy, i'm looking for right hand techniques to practice, i already came up with trem picking. Any other ideas?

Finger Picking?

hybrid picking?

one handed tapping?

already have sweeping down. I'll work on my constant downpicking and tempo, since those are the ones i'm most lacking in.

There was a great cross picking exercise that edg posted a few months back. Here it is, transposed down to open strings for those with left hand injuries:

4ths:



 4/4
    Gtr I
  S S S S S S S S S S S S
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|-----0-----0-----0-----0----|
|-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0------|
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|



And 6'ths:



  S S S S S S S S S S S S
|----------------------------|
|-----0-----0-----0-----0----|
|----------------------------|
|-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0------|
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|


Notice how both of these are 3 note patterns, but played in 16th notes. This will really make you concentrate, and it's great for your timing and control.

I would definitely do some arpeggiation, obviously without chords, but start doing different patterns and just working through at various tempos sweeping through the strings from E to E, A to E, D to E etc etc. It's really not much but I guess better than nothing if your left hand is out of commission.

Tuning to an open tuning will make things more interesting.
