Right Hand Technique

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by glassmoon, Oct 10, 2017.

  1. Hi all

    I found a clip of Chris Kringel playing with Cynic in 2007, and his right hand technique is astonishing. I know he's studied the Willis method - which is similar to the Sheehan method of "plucking" from the 2nd knuckle - thus creating an "even length" to your fingers, which in turn creates a more efficient plucking technique.

    My question is this... how the heck do you physically train your hand to play like this? Are there exercises to help develop this? It looks as unnatural as can be, but it is hugely efficient and smooth from what I have seen..... I've included a link to the clip to help explain.

    Many thanks!
  2. I think what you are seeing is the product - after many changes through the years.
    Good luck.
  3. I couldn't agree more with that - it's the "how the heck do I even approach achieving this????" that is perplexing to me.
