English is not my mother tongue, but i try my best to explain my problem. Usually i play Electric Jazz Guitar, but i am very interested in the way of gypsy picking.
If i make Reststroke Picking, i don't like to make a wrist with the right hand. I hold my hand loosely and sometimes my fingers touch the body of the guitar or pick guard with the fingertips to have more control about my picking. Is it really important to make a Wrist? i am not feeling very comfortable with it.
My next question is about the rules of picking. I know that every string change is a downstroke. But - is the first note every time a downstroke? The question sounds weird, but i found out, that i have problem to start a line with an upstroke, because i have to get the pick under the string without make an downstroke first. I hope you understand what i mean :-/. The only solution i see, is to make only an upstroke if the pick is already resting on a string, after you have made an downstroke ??
Last Question ! Do Gypsys use other Patterns to avoid one note on one string? Because i think one note per String Patterns are killing you if you want to play decending arpeggio. ??
I hope somebody can helpe me . Thank you a lot
