I've always believed that "whatever feels natural" is what you should do when it comes to picking. Though, recently after throwing alot of chromatic passes into my playing, my old style of picking has become a nuisance and everytime I pick a quick passage it feels like Im messing up, but Im not.
note: When I pick it is down, up, down - down, up, down - down, up, down, etc.. regardless of going up or down to the next string. Sometimes, on the rare occasion I might go, down, up, down, UP, down, up when switching from something like the high E to the B string.
I know the only way to fix the awkwardness is to simply practice, I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem or something similar.
