Hey all.. do most folks do the down-down-up universally for odd numbers of notes on strings recommended in Micheal's Gypsy Picking example #6? Or do many just do it on the high E? It seems challenging to work out on the fly for less lick-based, more improvisation kinds of playing.
I have been incorporating it mostly on the high E on licks and arps I'm working out. But, for playing without thinking, it seems super-challenging to etch into my unconscious in the way that I have with the "all downstrokes all the time when switching strings" approach.
Any comments, discussion, or suggestions relating to incorporating and practicing this technique would be appreciated.
Lastly, is this what Stochelo does or does he just use downstrokes for switching strings at all times?
