During my morning practice I notice something pretty cool about my misbehaving right hand. I have been able to pick up the swing rhythm easily when strumming. It's been a lot more challenging when picking individual notes. I notice that when I look at my right hand when playing, my rhythm becomes less erratic and more in sync. Like a little kid behaving when you look at him but misbehaving when you turn your back. Yeah, that could have been me growing up! It could be I am putting a lot of focus on making sure I learn the alternate picking correctly, like always going up on the "and" part of the beat. Too much focus leads to tightness and chokes out the feel of rhythm. Anyways, thought I'd share in case someone else is struggling with the alternate picking swing rhythm.
