I can pretty much only play using downstrokes. Why's it a bad habit?

oh god... alright well haven't you ever taken lessons or looked up videos on proper technique? Basically in short, you're inhibiting your ability to play fast and putting more strain on your muscles. I really don't care how fast you say you can play with down picking, the fact of the matter there's a point when you physically can't play fast enough and alternate picking is more efficient. When it comes down to it you can do whatever you want really, but alternate picking is better no matter what you say. If you take the time to learn how to, and really it isn't that hard, you'll be able to play a lot better

yeah that's the problem, look I'm not trying to be a dick but if you don't learn proper technique early on it's really going to hurt your playing in the future. And take it from me, ANY guitarist will tell you this

But I can play pretty fast since I play from the wrist, and I only play rhythm guitar in my band anyway, but thanks for the advice
