hi michael! how's it going?
i am about to buy the gypsy picking book. but i have one quick question before i'm about to make a move that will change my playing forever! haha!
i know that the gypsy style of picking and its rest stroke rule is very efficent for the gypsy jazz genre and it's good for acoustic instruments such as a manouche guitar. but should i apply the same technique is i play a different genre on a different guitar? such as playing rock on an electric guitar? still apply the gypsy method?
one of the main reasons why i'm interested in "gypsy picking" is because i have a hard time "picking really fast" when i'm on an electric guitar. and i know that picking on a manouche guitar should be a lot harder! and it seems like the gypsy players have their own picking method of picking away! so it makes sense that if i get really good gypsy jazz chops, i should also gain good "rock chops" since the electric guitar is an "easier" instrument to play on!
