He answered on my alternate picking question. So happy now! The economy of motion, that´s it folks!
Hi Steve, in a recent interview you mentioned you had to change the way you usually alternate pick due to an injury. What did you change exactly, the right hand position or the whole movement? I think your alternate picking – also you do not use it that often – is still amazing. It seems like you only have to move your wrist fractional to get incredibly fast (I always have to move my whole arm for faster runs). Could you explain this please?
I like to think of the economy of motion --meaning that it only takes a small movement to make a note sound. The accident has helped me to see it that way but it was a conscious effort to pick less and use more legato. Its sort of the difference between water rushing over a waterfall without any obstructions compared to a waterfall that is filled with boulders. They're both beautiful but I've already rode my raft over the boulders.
