Hey guys, I have a question that others may have asked...and it's hard to explain... but I've been practicing triplet patterns in the Gypsy Fire book and I'm having a little trouble maintaining the same speed with playing triplets when changing strings going back up (from high e to low e) as I do going down. It just seems like at fast tempos, switching to another down stroke and moving to a string above, makes a necessary and uncomfortable lag in playing versus going the other direction when you can just push down through the next string. I hope this makes sense to somebody.
I guess to simplify it, when I do a down-up-down then switch strings backward, I do another down-up-down. So, at the time of the string change, I am basically playing a downstroke on each string. When I try to do just this alone cycling back through the strings (going from high to low e with just downstrokes), I cannot possibly play that as fast as I can playing from low to high e with downstrokes. Of course, I can play the same if I do upstrokes all the way back...but this is not the "correct" way. Is there an alternative, or a trick to making this go faster at the faster tempos? Thanks in advance!!
