I think that your music is very unique because you use an unorthodox style of picking. Just for curiosity's sake, did you play your guitar that way when you started out in the beginning ? Do you think that your style of picking has any particular advantages/ disadvantages ? Is there any specific reason why you play like that?
Iv'e heard that you prefer using up strokes than using down strokes. Is that true ?
Wish you luck for the future :)
