Or do I just need to practice more. I'm a lefty, but play righty. I never thought about this until recently, that I've always had good strength and facility with my fretting (left) hand, but my picking has always, well, kind of sucked. I've always been able to do that 'buzzsaw' kind of stuff, where you get it going a million miles an hour. But the really intricate 16th note stuff at fast tempos I have trouble with. I've done various picking exercises, but always had trouble with moving from the high strings to the low, backkpicking, if that's a term. Since I'm too old to learn new tricks apparently, (though I'm trying, really I am!) I wondered if anyone thought these V-picks might help, or if I should just shut up and practice more.
