Toddk's hybrid picking demo video 

Bit of a long shot this but anyhow...

About 8 or 9 years ago Todd put together a demo video illustrating the technique that he (then) used to play flamenco, it was posted here and on other guitar forums. He showed how he approached everything, from tremolo through to 'pickado' to the divets cut into his pick to mimic pulgar clicks.

Did anyone here download it? If so please PM me, thanks.

Discussions are still here but the video is no longer available here, nor on the links from other guitar forums - seems Todd took it down. There are still two vids of Todd using the technique on his Youtube channel but the explanation vid is not there.

I guess he can provide you with it directly, right?

I did not get that comment. For your information, my right hand has an injury that makes me think about the future. I am just looking for possible ways to continue playing should I lose my current technique.

Hi Grisha

They are talking about Fender Telecasters. Hybrid picking is well known for its association with country styles ('chicken picking') and the Telecaster is often the guitar of choice for these players, for its distinctive clean bright tone. I know Todd is a big fan of Danny Gatton - an expert in this style.

Really sorry to hear about your hand and I can fully understand your wish to keep all options open.

Hey Grisha I meant no disrespect, I have so much for you.

Todd has had his problems with his hands and triumphed as I am sure you will. He will have great advice.

Blondie is right, lots of us have admiration for the great country players, I thought maybe you had caught the bug.

Maybe this might offer some inspiration for you. Scotty Anderson shows what can be done with a flatpick and a FLAT WRIST (check out the double stop scales in sixteenth notes !!!!). The great thing about a Telecaster or other electric guitar is that you can play standing up or walking around which is very therapeutic.

Try not to worry too much (easy to say I know) about the future, our beliefs can make a cage for us.

I do that during most of sessions.
And I have tried to introduce the benfits of upright playing, and better even with centered suspension to the nylon communities.
However, the flamenco guys and more even the classicals ( "naturally", you could say ) would hardly care enough to even respond.

Kenny Hill, who discovered the ergonomic advantage as well, even developed a dedicated stand-up guitar. http://www.hillguitar.com/website/catalog/standup.html

I tried to persuade him for to discover the yet distinctively superiour one-point suspension, in place of the common two-point strap that he intends for his adapted model. However, he showed just as inflexible as the common user.

There is a reason why professional restaurant giggers like to use soundhole hooks. It is the almost ideal way to go. Yet, if you can make that hook stay centered to your upper body / solar plexus, you get the heaven made perfect hold.

It´s flexibility in all directions, except of its over-all position teaches your hands to find their place blindly, while you may discover with pleasure how musical the agility of a standing body and its rhythm supporting swing actually is.
... Or don´t.
It will be coming anyway as futures feature and position.

Hey Grisha,

It was your technique that made me of the first heads who once started pointing out you for the ( classical) guitar community.
I don´t know how you execute today, but years ago I thought your technique to have been about perfect.

Now hearing of your injury, without wanting to sound smart assing or overzealous, of the several ideas coming up about eventual causes and useful ways to smooth things out, I would like to reduce it to a short essence:

If the injury is based on muscular or neuronal matter, try to highlight any superfluous contraction and to shut it down.
I know, sounds just too ordinary, but such can be life.
( There seem to have been many cases, where extremely good players after peak devolved into needless and bad habits which then introduced antagone exercise, hence blockade.)

I wish you full recovery and a playing as seamless and delightful as it gets.
I need you as inspiration after all.

Grisha,

One would assume your hands are well insured - like Lloyds of London in that (God forbid!) unfortunate event?

Todd.. would you be able to share the video here so I can see it too?

Grisha.. sorry to hear about your injury.. I totally understand it. I am nowhere even close to where you are technically.. but I haven't been able to play the guitar properly for 2.5 year because of an uncontrollable i finger. I can only try to imagine how it must feel for a person of your skill level to have an injury and thinking it might lose your techniques..

I'm not sure what your injury is.. I haven't seen anyone up to about 6 months ago and I have been having acupuncture which has helped alot but still hasn't healed me..

Grisha,
so sorry to hear that. I hope it is'nt serious. I hope you can see that
GB and i meant no harm. It was a joke about country style guitar.

I would be happy to help you in any way possible my friend.
