picking technique - a question
I noticed something about my picking and i wanted to ask is it ok.
I am learning to do strict alternate picking but i have noticed that when i move from one string to other and i am trying to let my hand do it ( as in kinda subconscious way ) the picking starts on next string based on which direction i am coming from.
For e.g. if i go from G string towards low E i tend to do an upstroke on new string and if i go say towards high E i do a downstroke. Though it seems natural to me cause that specific strum ( down or up ) presents an opportunity before the other one.
So i am in a way doing alternate picking per string but i do loose the patter to start afresh on a new string that i go to which means if i continuously move across strings in a specific direction i will do the same strum ( i think like sweep picking ).
Is this ok or should i force myself to learn string alternate picking by slowing my picking till i get it ??
Hope i have put it clearly.
