    Hey guys,

    I made a short clip of the way my picking hand moves when alternate picking.
    I notice my hand seems too far off the string and my plectrum isn't slanted enough.
    Is this correct?
    Any other tips how i can improve my technique to be able to play faster?

    (slow down the speed of the clip)


    Thanks for the help!

    Everyone's picking technique is a bit different, band I don't see anything wrong after a quick glance.

    I suggest you check out Troy Grady's YouTube series Cracking the Code and join his forum and post your video over there. You'll probably get more feedback there than here and it is focused on picking.

    Yeah, if you want analysis, get over to the Cracking the Code forum.
