I have noticed when mab picks he uses his wrist to go in and out with his thumb perpendicular to the strings. How does he manage to keep the plectrum parallel with the strings when picking coz I thought of adopting this motion

Explanations will get a big thank you personally because i am confused

Thank you

I'm not quite sure, but I know he has videos explaining his whole picking technique.

I know yeah i do have his videos but he doesn't go into the mechanics of his picking and just find it so complicated to work out

im guessing its alot like the method for single strokes when playing double mallets on percussion, ill try my best to explain

lay the top section of ur thumb over the top section of ur index so that when u pick ur thumb is parralell to the strings with the nail facing towards ur chin and the nail of ur index facing down towards the strings, when u pick just use a twisting motion of your arm because after a while this builds up speed without risking muscle tension and injury

he has a messed up way of picking. Stick with your own way that you like doing

Don't pick like MAB, he may be fast as a metaphor but his technique sucks: find your own way of picking.
