Hey UG, I was just curious how it's possible that I can pick through a scale faster than i can pick on one string. Let's say I run through a C Ionian. I can do that at like 135bpm, but if I try to just pick at 135 on just one string for an extended time (the same time it takes me to pick a C scale), my picking hand freezes up. Any guesses as to why this happens?
cus you have hand position changes most likely
My guess would be that you've established muscle memory, but that's just a guess.
is it normal to be having hand position changes? or should i actively be trying to minimize the position changes when i change strings?
