Pat Metheny Picking Technique Video

This is true. I read in an interview with him that he said he'd like to take some lessons with a great picker, like Frank Gambale, and learn a better picking technique.
I probably read the same interview.

However, I don't think he really needs to play like Gambale. Metheny regularly plays at fast bebop tempi, sometimes with fast chord changes. Gambale doesn't seem to do the same.

I just watched the video of him playing "Facing West" and it appears that he is using a rather thick white pick of some type. Steve Morse also uses the sides of thinner picks.

He's using those red Delrin picks in a matte finish. He had the Planet Waves brand, but every brand has them. 0.50 mm.
