...and it pisses me off. I love the sound of diminished arpeggios. They are too hard to play. Let's take a few note example of what I'm working on. 10th fret on the B string 7th fret on the B string moving to the 8th fret on the G string and back to the 7th fret on the B string I can't even execute this sequence at any fast speed. The first two notes aren't that hard since both are on the B string. But then I gotta move the pick to the G string and what is even worse is after that I gotta move the pick back to the B string. How does a guy play three consecutive notes when each note takes place on a different string? That back and forth business from one string to the adjacent string is exasperating. I've tried lateral wrist movement. I've tried more like the Yngwie finger and thumb movement. It still is way too hard. I don't know how these pros do it.
