Having more of a challenge with my upstroke picking, where I seem to be catching just the bottom two strings, so the upstroke is very "high-sounding" while the downstroke catches all of the lower strings and gives it a much lower sound.
Should a different technique be applied when holding the pick/striking the strings for the blues upstroke vs say, the "walk the line" boom-chicka upstrumming? It seems that my upstroke picking is smoother and comes easier for tunes like that vs the blues.
Might also have to do with how I am holding the pick, where I don't hold it straight down, but slightly at an angle? I then slightly change its angle on the upstoke to avoid catching the strings, but is this bad technique?
I might have missed where Justin focuses on how to properly hold the pick (2 fingers vs three, currently using 3 but trying to get more comfortable using two as that's how Justin holds it) and whether to shift the pick's position when upstroking, or if the pick should be kept in the same position whether down or upstroking.
I should add that I am trying to hold the pick softly so that it flows smoothly for both up and down strokes, but it gets loose and moves in my strumming hand, which I imagine is simply a "practice (and practice some more) to get the right tightness feel".
