I'm too attached to AP, gotta get out of my comfort zone to improve, any suggestions?

Economy picking is awesome. It's good to be able to do both, so you can switch in any situation smile.gif
Every song in the world would be great economy practice. I find especially skip picking stuff to be great for it. I made a youtube lesson-like thingy that you can try to learn if you want. smile.gif

The reason I asked this was because of you to be honest, I saw that you did the cynic cover as AP and you said you prefered economic while I'm the other way around, so... tongue.gif I'll check it, thanks.

Standard picking = ok (great for heavy)
Alternative picking = good
Economy picking = great
Hybrid picking = awesome

Alternative picking is probably the hardest to pick up on - getting the pick angle correct. Economy picking just speeds it up in a logical picking direction, i perfer it, it's more natural for me and sounds smoother. Just think are you moving up or down to the next string and follow through with the pick, practice sweeping across multiple strings too (that's the hard part).

Try out Hybrid picking afterwards, picking with the extra finger(s) to be used along side the pick!

Play around with them all, your'll find they all have there good use in different styles of playing.
Any song should work, some i guess match better than others. The feeling of the song can change with the picking pattern.
You want to play heavy, chunga chunga chunga rhythm, or smooth, etc?

Not really sure about the songs, I know I practice EP and AP both within same exercises, all of them, wherever possible. For example if you have one run, you can try to rehearse it with both EP and AP, it will only do you good.

It' not a song but an exercise, maybe it helps.
Try to practice it on a song/ solo you already know like Ivan said...
