I just wanted to share this mental block I had for so long:

Ben,

I don't know how many months I have been struggling with this gallop picking when I re read your message and the answer was right at the top:

I found the gallop rhthym quite tricky too. However, the time I really got better at it was when I stopped over analyzing it and just felt the groove.


Thanks for the advice Ben. I'm starting with a D DU - Not sure if it changes per song or not? I;ve seen others say DUDUDUDUDU But the D DU works good for me. Working with a metronome to get the speed up. It feels like I may make it now.

Wow that was a long time ago.. but man I'm pleased that you're getting somewhere ! Yes, D, D, U is correct. The other way is just alternate picking and not the ideal approach for gallop picking because you need to always be ready to start another riff or something so having the very last stroke as an UP means that you're always ready to begin with a Down stroke for whatever you need to do next. There's no guarantee that with AP it's going to land you in the spot you need to be in for the next change.
