When you speed pick do you rest your picking hand on the bridge or do you leave it floating and whats the right way to do it that will enable you to reach your maximum speed potential?

The wrist needs to be able to move freely it doesnt matter how you do it, i rest my hand LIGHTLY on the bridge and my little finger rests on the pickguard to aid control. Try it and see how you get on. Your motion need to be smooth as silk not choppy, also only have the very tip of the pick showing at the ends of your fingers this avoids it getting caught at speed.

Picking patern should be a continouous up down up down up down up down........................................................................

A good practice technique is to go from fret 1 to 4 on string six using the correct fingers then do the same for strings 5,4,3,2,1 once finished go to string 6 fret 2 and repeat from there, continue untill you reach the 12th fret and then do it all again backwards.
