• How does MAB's picking technique work? That crazy "pick perpendicular to the strings" thing? It looks like you have to move your whole arm for it.
• How do I get rid of scratchy/squeaky string noise with position shifts? I get it a lot on the lower strings, and it pisses me off because there doesn't seem to be any way to get rid of it. It's a lot worse with rhythm.
i'd say give hers a go. it's similar to the way petrucci recommends practicing runs with a metronome in rock discipline, except he said to increase by 8 bpm every time, which is the one i use because i have an analog metronome that only works in increments of 8. moving along at 1bpm per session, no wonder that'd work. it's such a fine adjusment that you're hardly even noticing it.
good question man. Now that I think about it I get almost 0 scratch, even if I want it. I thinking it has something to do with my dist unit. 1st my gain is not so high, 2nd i have a noise gate. Also try lifting your hands OFF the string when you shift, not just slide.
