Hey guys, new to the forum, made an account to ask this question- I play the electric and recently decided to learn the song remains the same version of Led Zeppelin's stairway and, after learning most of the ad libs that Jimmy does, I got stuck at some of the licks that involve string skipping, and the solo in the end involved lots of skipping as well. I tried to play that with just alternate picking, but i constantly made mistakes and it was just clumsy to play. I went to the tsrts video and saw what looked like that Jimmy played these with hybrid picking. I want to know it it is hybrid picking, because if it is it would be a huge relief as my conscience would never let me any way other than the way jimmy plays it.
