    Friedman's technique is extremely wierd. It's actually closer to gypsy-style rest-stroke picking than pure economy picking.

    Check out George Bellas if you're interested in straight economy picking. Michael Romeo, Jeff Loomis and Joe Stump use it as well, but use alternate picking alongside it.
    "The greatest power one may possess -- in any situation -- is simply not to care what happens.

    "In fact, it's the only power, all others being a semblance and mockery of it. But you must also not care about possessing the power itself. So fuck it."
