  • Random thoughts on sarod picking and thanksDateThu Jul 30, 2020 10:11 am

    Some things I have learned while working with Pebbers ideas on picking.

    When it starts coming together, it happens quickly. Allow yourself the freedom to sound bad while learning.

    For me at least, learning to feel very precisely how little effort and motion it take to get a good sound will blow your mind.

    If you are sincere in learning how to feel this, you will be rewarded.

    Thanks for all the free advice.

  • Scalpel picking thoughts.DateMon Jul 16, 2018 10:35 am

    I have been watching Pebber's videos for years and have purchased the 3 DVDs on picking. The thing with scalpel picking is that Pebber makes it look so easy. After about 6 months of working on this, I am starting to see the light. At some point, it has started to become easier for me to do this and I feel like the pick is gliding over the very top of the string with great ease and speed. This is not a plucking feeling but more like a feeling of gracefully causing the string to vibrate. It takes very little effort and as the speed increases, the motions become smaller and tend to morph into what I imagine is sarod picking. Does this sound familiar to you all? Also, the feeling of playing on the very top of the string makes topics pick-slanting, angling the pick, inside picking, outside picking, etc. seem unnecessary. I'd appreciate any thoughts.

  • Scalpel picking and circle pickingDateMon May 09, 2016 9:46 am

    I am getting a handle on scalpel picking, using the thumb and finger motion to slice across the strings. At higher speeds, this slicing back and forth seems to want to morph into a tiny circle. Does anyone else do this? It feels natural to me to have this happen but I am interested in what others do? Thanks in advance for any replies and thank to Pebber for making this stuff available.
