Have you watched Troy Grady explain what he calls "Cracking The Code" of how to alternate pick fast and clean and that according to his "discovery", the key to cracking the code is to use upward and downward pick slanting? If so, and you've tried using upward and downward pick slanting, how important of a concept do you think this is to fast, clean alternate picking? Do you think it is the most important mechanical aspect to being able to alternate pick fast and clean? Has adding one or two way pick slanting to your technique improved you alternate picking significantly?
I've seen all his videos with cracking the code including the ones that feature MAB . However I am not so sure of this slanting effect as i tend to use the same way michael picks and it is so awesome but difficult too . Troy Grady is super cool and incredible guitar player but i guess Michael's answer to this would be a good closure to this topic
I have experimented with one way and two way pick slanting since I have bought the Master Mechanics Series, and I have noticed it to be a significant benefit to my playing. Troy Grady has analyzed exactly what constitutes efficient picking technique to a far greater degree than any guitar teacher before him. Using cameras that attach to the guitar and utilizing slow motion, he has discovered things the great fast and clean guitar players all do in their playing without even knowing they are doing it. Because of that, none of them ever thought to teach it. That's why guitar is the only instrument where there is so much conflicting opinion about what constitutes efficient technique. Until now, the greats didn't know exactly what they were doing that allowed them to play the way they do.
