GMC Forum _ PRACTICE ROOM _ Alternate Picking 6 Workout

Posted by: Victor Simion Aug 10 2020, 06:13 PM

Here is my practice exercise

I have the most trouble playing that sequence of notes on the same string.
I gradually builded speed and I stopped when I felt like I was starting to completely lose my hand sync, maybe my fingers got tired along the way when I was pushing the speed.

Hi Victor! Great to see you practicing these licks! You are on the right track here. Let me share some thoughts and suggestions:

- I would practice technique using a bit less drive/gain so you can have more dynamics.
- Try to make your right hand up and down movement smaller. Focus on making the smaller possible.
- Your left hand fingers could also move less. Also try to economize movement. That's the key to gain more speed.

That's all by now! Keep on the good job!

NICE!!! Very good on sync, control and muting. As gabe says a bit less gain may be in order. The better you get the less gain you'll need or want. You can increase or decrease the amount of distortion by how hard you pick the strings. This is what creates a sense of "dynamics"
