Some licks which are presented in G.P. book require very vast consecutive downstrokes (f.e. tremolo-picked lick taken from Improvisation 1). Is it really possible to play downstrokes that fast?
At how fast tempo is it possible to play f.e. sixteenth-notes with consecutive downstrokes if you have totally mastered g.p. tecnique? (F.e. Charley Christian used only downstrokes and played (usually at the end of his solos) sixteenth-notes at c. 115 bpm - much slower than many django's lines.)
