when i play something using alternate picking it sounds kinda scratchy, it only occurs when playing really fast using alternate picking, i noticed it when playing the solo for in the fire by roadrunner united. i was wondering whether its technique on my part, or whether i could be just how i angle the pick or perhaps the bridge needs adjusting. my strings are pretty old too. so lots of options to choose from! any feedback appreciated. thanks
I would say the strings, I had a semilar problem with my old strings.
I get that problem, too, and I think the problem is that you're not holding the pick parallel to the strings, so when you're picking really fast, you're scraping up and down the strings a little bit and not just picking it.
thanks, ill try both those!
