Badass Inside Picking by Ben Higgins is epic awesome!
The course demonstrates two technical points and two exercises. He shows his wrist technique and thumb technique for inside picking. All this is within 3 videos! It’s short (at 12 mins and 30 seconds) but even with that, Ben actually solves the problems I’ve encountered. For me, this makes this video worthwhile! I can review the content and practice it again even if I haven’t watched it in awhile.
In the past, I’ve bought longer videos that were hard to digest because of the duration. In this course, I don’t have this problem. Ben manages to simplify and help focus your practice sessions.
I know some people (including myself before buying my first Ben Higgins video), may feel reluctant to buy something with such little video content. But, let me reassure you that if you’re looking for a way to improve your inside picking, this video is worth considering. Thanks Ben!
Pros: Great focused, targeted material!
TLDR: If you need to level up your inside picking skills, buy this and practice the exercises!

[Submissions for Review Consideration]
- Are you an author who wrote a jazz, guitar or music book?
- Have you created a DVD or an online video course or subscription based website?
- Would you like me to review your book/course?
Please send me a message at azsamad2 at gmail.com with:
For courses: a link to the course/video/product + access info etc.
For books: a link to the book (Dropbox) or PDF attachment (if it’s small) for review consideration.
Depending on whether I dig the book/course, I’ll let you know if I do plan to review it!
I cannot guarantee a review for every submission & if I’m not too into it, I may opt not to review it. I mean, it’s better to get a good review that for me to write a bad review just because it’s not a match for the kind of stuff I dig right? :p
NOTE: All reviews reflect my honest personal opinion so be aware that I will point out both cool Pros and Cons that I see in the work. You dig? 🙂
