I am coming back to the guitar after almost 10 years away. I have been around the instrument as a jazz player for almost 25 years.
The biggest challenge coming back is what, I believe, drove me away the first time. That inconsistentnt right hand technique that stems from trying to convert to double picking from a problem free economy picking life. Thanks a bunch John Petrucci.
At what point in time do you bite the bullet with time and effort to reprogram yourself to focus on a style of picking? To truly commit to economy picking would mean a great deal of work to focus on odd/even string patterns etc etc. But enough is enough, right?
Anyone else have experience with this?
