Hey guys, can someone give me some advice on how to go from the Gypsy picking technique to an effective 'wrist on the bridge' electric technique? I've spent a lot of time on the Gypsy thing and this style is now the default setting for my brain, but when I go back to electric (well technically it's a Benedetto shaped hollowbody) I have trouble playing fast or being comfortable. I hear many Gypsy players who make this transition still use rest strokes and retain the 'downstroke on string change' principle (and I mean with the 'wrist on bridge' thing-not just using the gypsy technique on electric), but I've noticed many players using more upstrokes than they would with their wrist out.
I know it's a little pedantic and it's usually best to just do what feels right, but what I'm asking is are there any general principles anyone has discovered about when to use these extra up strokes, about how rest strokes are helpful/harmful, or just anything that might be useful to know? I'm just starting this transition so it may be just a matter of time, but your input would be greatly appreciated.
