comment Finding the “Starting point” when creating a composition or score
I did consider doing so, but I wanted to leave it open. I write a lot of things, from technical death metal through to sweeping orchestral stuff, through to little poppy electronic ditties. I'm a believer that there's a commonality to composition that crosses genres, so I didn't limit this to just one.

comment Memorising the fretboard when using dropped tunings?
This is largely what I had been doing, but no, thankfully no bandmates at this point in time ;)

comment Finding a balance point learning to pick a guitar at a right angle?
It's a more direct attack on the string. Picking at a 45 degree angle gives a more "scraping" sound on the string, and also makes playing at high speeds trickier since there's more of a horizontal offset being applied via that diagonal friction. That's my rationale.

comment Finding a balance point learning to pick a guitar at a right angle?
I'm not playing blues, so the whole "digging in" angle thing just isn't working for me. Picking straight is something I feel would really improve my technique so I'm asking for specific help on how to make it happen.

comment Finding a balance point learning to pick a guitar at a right angle?
I'm sorry, I got perpendicular and parallel confused, I mean picking directly across the string, not holding the pick at a right-angle from it. My mistake!

I'm changing the pick orientation from at a 45 degree angle to at a right angle from the strings, and the question relates to arm movement in that position. Apologies if it was unclear.
