ALTERNATE PICKING WHILE PALM MUTING


No other technique seems to give folks as much trouble as clean alternate picking while palm muting. Let's work on this a bit as it will give your solos great range/dynamics. It creates a very percusive lead sound used by some killer players (Vai, Nuno, etc.)

*The trick is to keep your palm mute planted and pick as much as you can using the finger and thumb instead of the wrist. Many times, folks that have developed a habit of muting with their left hand have serious trouble with this. The good news is, it's easy to fix smile.gif

FORCING YOUR FINGERS TO OBEY!!


Our fingers get trained every time we pick up the guitar. Sometimes, they get trained in to playing certain sequences and this can make playing unexpected things a bit difficult. Muscle memory can actually get in the way. Let's play a few things that will help to "reset" your hands Muscle Memory.

Fighting The Familiar - This lick should feel familiar. It's a good stepping off point for today's work.

BEYOND TRIPEGGIOS

Let's work a bit on building some licks that push the limits of our stretch and our pinky. These are notorious weak spots for many players. We have done lots of work with "Tripeggios". Let's try to use some of those shapes but in an alternate picking/string traverse context. Let's start with something very very simple to use as a base.

Today's work will continue our focus on Alternate and Economic Picking being used in the same lick and will also bring in some work on overcoming muscle memory. Muscle memory can be very helpful, but sometimes it can get in your way. Let's start off fairly simple and work our way towards crazy.
