Full Version: Quick Licks #96 - Double Picking Gone Wild
GMC Forum > Discussion Boards > INSTRUCTORS > Todd Simpson
Todd Simpson
In this Quick Licks, let's do a bit of "DOUBLE PICKING" which is just striking a given note twice. In a given pattern, if you were going to strike a note once, then an adjacent note twice, to 'Double Pick" it, you'd strike the first note twice and the adjacent note four times.

It's important to keep a LOOSE grip on your pick without letting your hand go slack. Finding the middle ground is the most important thing. If you tense up, you will WRECK your endurance and your precision. This is a Drill all about helping your hand find the perfect balance between playing briskly and not tensing up. Give it a go!!

Remember, precision first! Speed comes with repetition.

Take 1 Sarge, there is a little hiccup in there, REC button syndrome. Like a total dingbat I went and practised this without the repeats, I didn't spot them and only listened to your video once so when I discovered them the other night as I was playing along with GP5 for the first time just prior to shooting the video I went into meltdown. It took a lot to train those repeats in after learning it without rolleyes.gif I did go around 15% quicker without the repeats laugh.gif

You've got it! This one is yet another lick that is all about double picking adjacent strings. I've got wads of licks that fall in to this category. Once you get the left hand down, you can just pick which notes you use on the right hand. You may notice it feels similar to some other licks on the pick hand. It's a complex bit of picking so well done!
You just....
LEVELED UP!!!!
