I recently migrated into this realm from the classical side of the world. I've recently been studying Gypsy Jazz and am having to recall my time spent almost twenty years ago when I used a pick and played John McLaughlin, Dimeola type of things.
My question is this- I keep seeing people talking about "rest-stroke" technique.
I know what that is in classical but am unaware of exactly what it is describing w/ regard to using a pick and playing Django type stuff. Does it have something to do with either anchoring or not anchoring the wrist near the bridge or does it refer to something else.
I am aware of what alternate picking, sweep picking, economy picking, and a classical rest stroke are. If any of those techniques can help you to explain please refer back to them.
