    Do you ever double thumb, or are you able to get all the speed you need just smacking the strings like in the first video? I find it really hard/awkward to try to get good speed without double thumbing.


    I do double thumb however it's gone downhill quite a bit because I prefer the thumb pop and that is how my style has evolved.

    But I have no problem with the speed in the first video. Actually, it's a bit slow...

      I tried both methods, the first one is definatly more "natural" to me and came a lot easier. The double thumb is going to take some work, but based on your two videos I am not sure it's even worth it since the first technique just feels better to me.


      Amazing how simple this is when it gets broken down like this...!

          Ok here is an idea; how about the rest of that video I asked about, he changes from the techniuqe that you showed us to something else...?
