Hello Muris

Here on GMC I find it easy to find plenty of lessons on AP etc.

One of things I find hard however when doing fast alternate picking runs is what I know as 'outside picking'. Places
where I for example have to play a downstroke on the D string and then an upstroke on the G string.
I think it would be a nice subject to go in depth with in a lesson. Both because it can be a tricky thing in normal alternate picking, but also because it can be a technique applied by itself.

You can use string skipping and other things to increase the difficulty for example.

I chose to post it here for you because you're the technical guru on the site so to speak tongue.gif ..
But feel free to suggest it to some of the other instructors if you think that's a better idea.

Anyways, hope you like this idea



Ah I just remember that you're in Australia - oh well the suggestion still stands

Hi Mathis. smile.gif

Have you checked this lesson?

Title itself doesn't tell a lot but it is actually very much about outside picking,
nice exercise to get you prepared when outside picking comes up.

The subject is quite wide tho, string skipping can bring more problems as you said
and I will surely try to make one or more lessons on this subject in future,
cheers for bringing it in. smile.gif
