Right hand Technique: "The Key Turn"
This might be hard to put into text but hopefully this'll make sense...
So I've heard a lot of mixed responses to a certain picking technique/motion where during some of the player's upstrokes (especially on jumps from a down stroke on the E string to an upstroke on the D or G) they angulate their wrist backwards (as if turning a key) and sort of "scoop" the upstroke before bringing their wrist back to a level position.
I've heard many people advise against this, but it seems like on some of this big jumps on alternate picking runs, it's almost impossible NOT to angle your wrist that way, if only to avoid the strings in between the "jump."
What do you guys think?
