Glitch Picking

By Shane Gibson

Glitch Picking...well, at least that's what I call it. A while back, I was working on my inside picking (picking in between two adjacent strings). Once I got to a speed that kicked my arse, my pick began to double-pick the strings. Knowing this was an accident, I would try to refrain from doing it. However, I also realized that it sounded pretty cool. I then decided to go with it, and try to make this glitch productive. This is the first riff I've written using this (style?) of picking. Note the up and down strokes. When playing fast, it should only look like two strokes at a time. Have fun. Listen to the song I've written from this form of picking on the front page of my website at
