Hi Kris!

As the beginner, I am, at the moment I study the patterns of your "Marty Friedman style arpeggio lesson".

Hereby, especially at pattern No. 3, my fingers cramp, without that I am noticing this while playing, but mostly afterwards.
Especially here

e|---4-7p4----7-11p7-
b|-5--------9---------

I have to be very carefully, that my middlefinger on b-string doesn´t touch (slightly) the e-string at picking the e-string at 7th or 11th fret... And I am quite sure, that trying to avoid middlefingers touch on e-string leads in my cramp.

Do you have any ideas, how to avoid the cramping?

Greetings from Berlin,
Burkhard

hmm..

What I usually do is to practice the same thing a few frets higher - since the stretches usually are what gives me the cramp. Perhaps worth a try? smile.gif
