So I have been trying to add some Wes inspired octave lines to my playing. I know he played with his thumb and that is the traditional way of going about it it. But I am finding the thumb technique is not coming to me rapidly, and I kind of resist it...I would like to mix the sound in with picked lines. I am finding it easier - but still a challenge - to hybrid pick the octaves. Anyone gotten comfortable playing these types of lines with hybrid picking? Or am I holding myself back, and should just bite the bullet and try to do like Wes?
