Daniele Gottardo posted a lesson on youtube. I transcribed it and created a little practice file. I'm not certain about the right hand picking. I posted a request on another forum and everyone was like "Look at the freaking video moron." Anyway- That was not the answer I was looking for.

I think I have an idea of the picking but it is pretty fast and there are pulloffs in between some of the picked notes. Ok, so maybe I AM a moron! haha Anyway, if someone could post what they think the picking so that I can double check I would appreciate it. I like to be dead certain of picking before I invest hours learning something wrong.

My practice file.

I have more of these little practice files if anyone is interested. I make them using Guitar Pro and a screen capture program called Snap Z Pro (I use a Mac). I then put these practice files in iTunes and it saves me time not fumbling around with paper and books.

Thanks,
John Foster

He's doing the minimum amount of picking, so if there are two notes on a string (the diminished seventh arpeggios use either one note per string, or two notes per string - per position), you use hammer-ons/pull-offs, otherwise you continue the sweep in the direction of the next string.

Taking your second link as an example:

CODE
--------------------------------------------------------1h4p1-----1-----
------------------------------------------------3--------------3------
----------------------1h4p1---------1h4---------------------------------
---------------3---------------3----------------------------------------
-------2h5-----------------------------------------------------------------
-4--------------------------------------------------------------------------
U     U       U       U       D      U        U        U      D    U

In the slower video, you see that when ascending, his picking only changes direction twice in that fragment (G and B strings + E and B strings), and that matches up with my tab above.

I hope this helps.

I think your downs and ups are backwards though.
