Perfect! I am happy to have you on board!
First I would like to give you some hands workout exercises those will develop your alternative picking technique very fast!!!
The trick is to practice it at a very slow tempo and get full control over your hands!!!
It is very important to master mechanical exercises you will get great results and will see progress very very fast!

Hey Alex! I'm good thank you smile.gif and just today I wanted to ask you a couple questions; I think I understand how to play all the exercises but I am not sure about the rhythm or timing... or if it's just playing each note with a metronome? Also my guitar is tuned down to Drop C because of a different lesson I am working on, is that a problem or should I play it just the same regardless of the tuning difference?

Hey Grace!!!
I uploaded a guitar pro file that has all the rhythms
Do you have it?
Also tuning doesnt matter it is more about rhythm and timing than notes!

It is all good! Here is a new assignment!
I have created a new backing track!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/chord-progression
The chord progression is:
Dmi - Bb - Gmi - F
I would like you to use D minor pentatonic in two positions:




Try to be as melodic as possible and let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything! smile.gif

This is really cool smile.gif so I should just improvise on top of the backing track using those two positions right?
