Totally understood! Sorry to hear about the Parkinson'sI did start using that pattern and thought I had it down before I shot the video but blanked while shooting, lol. Definitely that section needs to be better on my part.
Just getting through a song while shooting is a major accomplishment for me now. The nerves start triggering Parkinson's symptoms, so I'm always thinking:
-are the tremors going to get violent in the middle of this? This is usually up to me, I can bring this shit on by worrying/nerves/self induced stress.
-are the tremors visible?
-is my camera (iPhone) on? Am I sitting in the right position? Am I "dancing" too much (caused by the meds I'm on)?
-are my tracks armed in Logic?
-don't forget to smile Mark, this is not a root canal.
The list is almost endless, lol.
I think the first beat is d-u-h-p-d-u, but the rest sounds all picked. You have 5 items there though and it's a sextuplet lick.If I were to critique, I'd say the fast part at ~1:00 could be cleaner by choosing a different picking pattern. Listening to the record, it sounds like there are some strategic pull-offs in there. I was having success with this pattern:
v ^ p v p
So, down, up, pull-off, down, pull-off.
