Hybrid Picking
  • Hi Jim et al...

    I'm just starting to learn hybrid picking. I was just watching that section of your course on Truefire and noticed that you, like so many other pros that I've watched, have their right hand in almost a claw like position (flat top of hand) when picking in general and hybrid picking. Was this a learned style? l try to get my hand in that position and no way! Maybe with practice (lots of it). It does however look like it's very efficient.

    So, what's the deal?

    Thanks,

    Dan
  • Hi Dan- My hybrid picking technique was a natural thing developed by playing right hand exercises (the first few pages) in the classical book "120 Studies for Right Hand Development" https://www.amazon.com/Studies-Right-Development-Classical-Guitar/dp/0898981905.
    Thank you!
  • Thanks Jim. I'll order one and add to my practice routine. Dan
