Is there a science to selecting the chord form and roll pattern for cross picking chords? I have mostly been using a standard (if there is such a thing) forward roll on the common (again, if there is such a thing) open chords. Some times it sounds great (open G and open C alternated for example), sometimes just okay and sometimes not so good. Do you just try different forms and rolls until you find one that sounds best or is there a method to the madness?
