Hybrid picking has become such an integral part of my playing that I certainly don't know what I would do half the time without it. I find that it makes so many things on the guitar more economical to play.
I feel that if a player can develop their alternate picking, economy picking and hybrid picking to form a complete approach to right hand technique (or lefty), they are then able to play pretty much anything that comes their way in a very economical manner.
Hybrid picking may seem awkward at first, but trust me when I say that it makes many things MUCH easier to play in the long run.
Many of today's greatest players employ hybrid picking heavily in their playing including Guthrie Govan, Joe Bonamassa and countless others.
