    Calm down, slow down, and do your best to retrain yourself at slow and moderate speeds before getting to anything fast. If you play jazz, try playing some Wes Montgomery lines with all downstrokes...

    That's the important point. The reason PG picks so well without anchoring isn't because floating is better, and the reason John Petrucci or Steve Morse can pick so well isn't because anchoring is...

    The quickest way is to tune the sixth (thickest) string down a whole step so that it is an octave below the fourth string, then repeat the process on the A string. After that, tune the thinnest...

    Morse anchors, Petrucci anchors, DiMeola anchors, Yngwie anchors (but in a slightly funny way)...

    You might want to change the way the pick is laterally anchored - it'll help to have it pushing up against the first joints of your first two fingers. It may also help to file away a groove along...
