I use both, but I'm far more skilled with free stroke 100% alternate picking. I have noticed, however, that my gypsy picking has developed much faster than my standard picking did when I was just learning guitar 4 years ago. Do you guys believe that practicing standard picking benefits gypsy picking and vice versa? I haven't been using gypsy picking long enough to notice anything other than what I said before, I learnt the GP technique relatively quickly.
