Mix of both I would say,
you used 2 techniques to execute that very 3nps pattern.
But yeah, you made it VERY difficult for you by using economy (sweep)
right from the start, that putted you in outside picking. smile.gif

When you play economy, you always compromise sound. On the other hand, it's natural to play economy when you going down, from low E. Try to combine those two. If you play neoclassical metal, economy picking is essential, if not, it is not so important!

I guess he means that neoclassical metal uses a lot of sweep arpeggios, but I think most don't consider this economy. I guess sweeping falls into the economy picking category but not limited to arpeggios but to everything even playing an ascending or descending run.

I like the sound of economy, and of alternate, being able to do both is a plus in my opinion.

Instead of discussing advantages and disadvantages of alternate and economy picking, you could've spent that time practising both techniques hahaha

You should be familiar with both techniques, but mastering only one technique will be enough. It's all just a matter of your playing style.

well I use alternate picking but, when im playing fast and I need to jump over a string (for instance from A to G) I find it most comfortable with economy picking. But still that is hard too dry.gif Should I use alternate picking when jumping over strings?

For instance when im playing the intro to sweet child o mine I find it hard to play it with alternate picking. Well I learned the intro before I learned alternate picking so that could be a reason.

yeah, neoclassical metal uses tons of arpeggios so in that sense it's economy.

The thing about being really stupid, is that there are a zillion ways to be a moron. There are usually several ways to be intelligent, given a situation, but it is a small finite number. But there are always a zillion ways to be to blithering idiot. So finding a new way to have the intellect of an artichoke is nothing to be proud of really, it is easy to do.


So true... To bad im still an artichoke haha
