I'm using the Wegen 3mm pick. I have "Gypsy Picking", and I am doing my best to pay careful attention to all aspects of pick technique. I am struggling with unlearning years of alternate-stroke picking and boom-chuka rhythm, so I try to be especially careful about technique. I think I'm doing something wrong, and if so, I want to stop before I have to unlearn it too!
I can't seem to keep the pick oriented properly when I'm practicing La Pompe rhythm. I start out strumming with the pointy-end, and then after a chorus or two, the pick has just rotated and I'm strumming with a fat shoulder. When I try to go from playing rhythm to playing lead, the pick is just oriented all wrong. Any ideas on what am I doing wrong? Any advice on how to fix it?
