1 - Accompaniment question. When performing a fill-in triplet landing on the next downbeat, what is the appropriate right-hand picking sequence - is is up-down-up/down or is it the opposite, which would make the downbeat happen on an upstroke?
2 - Chromatic descending tremolo. Such as that performed around bar 8 of Django's solo in Some Of These Days - which starts on the high e and ends on the g# one octave and a sixth below. I have heard he would use his second finger on a string and slide it down the neck while tremoloing with the right hand; is this true and, if so, how does he transition to the required chromatic sixth so damn smoothly?
Thanks for shedding some light on this!
