I'm not new to guitar, but I am very new to GJ. I just got my copy of Gypsy Picking today and I am starting the long journey down the GJ road. I want to make sure I'm doing this right. When I do exercise #2 (down and upstrokes on open strings), I find that as I move from the low E to the high E, the position of the pick along the string moves towards the bridge. That is: I pick the high E closer to the bridge, and the low E closer to the soundhole. Is this correct? When I read the rest stroke stuff, it makes so much sense, yet it's totally different from what I have been doing for the last 15 years (I'm one of those guys who always rested my hand on the bridge).
