Hi JamesT! It's true that our limitations and our strengths define our style. However there are lots of exercises that could help you to develop you alternate picking technique.

Here you have an example:

This is an exercise to train your alternate picking technique on one string over A minor scale. We will use a repetitive pattern very used by neoclassical players like Yngwie Malmsteen and Vinnie Moore. This is the played on string 1, then on the string 2 and finally on the string 3. Please add the remaining strings if you feel comfortable with these ones.

Woah! Dude! Thank you. I'll give these a try. Part of me keeps thinking that if I stick with it, the AP skills will come around someday. My current theory is "learn as many AP songs & exercises as you can" and each new one will bring some small increase in skill. I'm hoping cause maybe after 1000 songs and as many weeks, it really will come around. Who knows, but I'll bet some of you guys are thinking "what? ... 150bpm? ... hard? ...It never was for me." Well, you guys have talent, and I guess I gotta work for it. biggrin.gif Oh well, we all have to overcome our limitations eh?



Hey guys! ...Lay off the dougnuts. Those things will rot your gut, clog your arteries, stunt your growth, and make you older than your years. laugh.gif

Hi James! I like your current theory! Learning songs will keep you playing AP licks everyday and that's the only secret... This is not about talent, it's just hard practice. Check out some Paul Gilbert or Vinnie Moore stuff, they have killer AP technique so they play lots of licks using the technique.

I don't mind what Gabriel calls me if that lovely food is the result of it biggrin.gif

I did have to look it up in 'google translate' and apparantly it means 'roast'. A bit more spectacular than we call a roast over here as well... laugh.gif

I'm quiet problematic with my alternate picking specially on fast passages (both on single and multiple strings). I guess I need to work more synchronizing the picking with my fretting hand. Need to improve the timing.

This is very important because you can't play clean if don't have both hands synchronized. There is no secret about this, just hard practising and I think that it's more effective with metronome or over a drum loop. You have to start with a slow tempo that is comfortable for both hands and increase little by little the tempo. always checking that both hands are still synchronized.

Great to hear! What exercises or songs have you been practising to improve your finger picking?
