Ha ha!~ Looks good man!
After it's all said and done, Pebber's is the ONLY opinion that really matters around here. Having said that, I still just wanted to let you know that I checked out all of the above posted videos and thought they were fantastic! Your timing is excellent, the notes are clear, left-hand technique looks great, and your picking looks effortless.
What can you do to improve? Well, just keep doing what you are doing. Go ahead and bump up the BPM's on your metronome, and just keep pushing yourself. You've got the tools, you know what to do,,,so just keep doing it, my friend!

thanks a load adam. have been doing it for past 4 years(since i found pebbers free videos) and still going on, added sarod picking to my routine recently and economy (following gambale on that. might go into marshall harrison stuff in a "few years" lol). i'm experimenting a lot of picking techniques so it'll all help me hone a new one that's unique to me.

You are most welcome, my friend! I love the fact that you are working on different styles of picking. I'm not sure what your practice routine is like, but it usually takes me about 6 months of drilling a new technique before deciding if it is something I can actually incorporate into my playing.
I spent my entire life, pre-Pebber Brown, playing what turned out to be "economy/directional picking." With Sarod picking, I drilled that for a solid 6 months before I was comfortable using that technique in a live setting. That was years ago, yet I still work on my Sarod technique daily. Marshal Harrison really got me focused on advanced hybrid and swybrid picking, and that's also something I work on pretty much every day.
So why wait? Dive right in, Ashan! It's really obvious that you have the ability and the drive to learn. I see no reason why you cannot add these techniques to you growing arsenal, if that is what you are interested in doing. Check out Marshall's video and start working on his techniques!
