hey guys... any of you know that song? i need some help playing it... on the chorus/main riff, do i strum up and down or is down only okay?
#3
so all down picking is fine if im more comfortable... or do you think i should develope going up and down?
#4
Are you saying that you don't know how to alternate pick? And you're trying to play Canon Rock?
#6
Well get comfortable doing it, if you can't alternate pick well then you're going nowhere as a guitar player.

Well, when muting the main riff i downstroke fast coz i want that hard chunk and feel. If you alternate, it'll sound fast but not as hard as heavy downstroke IMHO. Dont get me wrong, you can get it harder but i just feel my downstoke is heavier than my up, hence i downstroke. I dont downstroke when playing the G string's note inside the progression, i use alternate instead.

visit the jerryc forums, I'm sure there are plenty of topics on it.

Personally I strum down only because it gives the riff more "crunch", but maybe you want to alter the overall sound of the riff from how Jerry's cover is....up to you.
