Here is some helpful advice from Pebber who made an effort to steer us in the right direction.If you have not seen it already here it is.Also, if you want, we can stick to pickingon one string and try to sort out our timing problems a bit during Julyand open a Class2020 thread on adjacent picking next month or even laterso that we don't rush it at the expense of doing it right.If someone would like to upload recent picking on adjacent strings practice videowe can easily make a thread dedicated t...

Hi Roger,nice of you to join in with your practice video.At some points it looks like you lose timing (to me it seems on the lowestand highest number of notes per beat), the ones in the middle sound good to my (bear in mind also beginner) ear.Technique seems tight up until 5 or 6 notes per beat and at that pointit seems you use a bit more arm/hand movement for higher number of notes per beat.Drifting off in timing seems to be a common beginner problem we all need to work on.The technique should ...

Hi MadJo,to me your picking technique looks rather well.And the timing seems accurate most of the time. Only on all up video it sounds like you lose the click a few times(I might be mistaken)I tend to check myself by recording my practice and listening to the audio at reduced video speed (75% or even 50% but then the sound tends to get weird :) )and then try to practice more the things i hear go wrongwhich is sometimes hard to notice while practicing.Anyway, good job and keep it up.Cheers

And the best thing is, you get better at it even withou...
