Thanks Pebber, that's MUCH clearer than BASICS_1A_Picking_Technique.mp4, and makes a lot of sense.Unless you say differently, I'm going to assume the sweep angle and pick angle are the same for strumming across groups of strings as for single string picking.Cheers,Peter

I'm still confused. See the attached video.At 3:30-3:38 in BASICS_1A_Picking_Technique.mp4, Pebber is showing the "scalpel" motion diagonal to the string motion which I'm trying to emulate, but when I do it it sounds like crap (at least with a blunt-tip pick).However, at 2:45 - 2:53 and 3:10- 3:23 he shows an entirely different motion "straight across the string" (which works for me).What's really the correct motion?

Thanks Pebber!One followup: where it gets into (Volume 1) Section Two: Position Playing (page 60), is that aligned with what's considered best techniques nowadays? It seems somewhat different from the CAGED system and the 5, 7,12, 14 systems you published on your PDF downloads. Should I ignore Leavitt's Position Playing or follow it?Cheers,Peter
