First and foremost I'd like to thank Michael for this again great initiative in federating all of us django fans via better ommunication means. Thanks !
Now here's a question on technique. Like many of you I'm working on my right hand technique and use the standard gypsy technique (I've been doing so for a little more than a year now with the help of Michael great book on the subject and some videos).
I use rest strokes a lot now and it brings a greta sound. But when playing fast (or very fast lines), although I still keep playing rest strokes (I think), I'm not totally sure the pick actually rests on the next adjacetn string, since the movement being too fast to be sure and since you have in mind the fact the pick needs to get upward fast again to play the next rest stroke. So my question is: when playing fast lines, do you hear or feel the pick resting on the next string or at some point in speed it doesn't matter anymore to notice if it does since what matters above is to be in time with the right picking pattern ? what's your experience on this ? Am I the only one who fears not to be the appropriate technique when playing fast ?
thanks for any thought or recommendation on this.
