I've been playing for 8 months and I think that this is a common newbie problem: my pick gets stuck. I started to analyze my picking motion/hand and I realised that the pick is too flat ( perpendicular to the strings). I have watched some videos about pickslanting and I'm trying to learn downward pickslanting. Everything is fine with some licks/patterns but when I try to play the songs that I already know with this technique ... everything falls apart.
I'm trying to follow this lesson: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/lessons/guitar_techniques/complete_guide_to_downward_pickslanting.html
The main things I learned from this lesson are:
- You switch strings on an upstroke.
- You start with a downstroke.
- You do some legato in order to make the first 2 points work.
The problem is that I encounter a lot of patterns where this doesn't work. Am I missing something?
I know that there are players that use only downward pickslanting, how do they do it?
