  • Hi guys! :) With this lesson we will take a look at one of the most vital skills you will need to practice to advance on the guitar; Alternate picking.

    But to make matters more interesting, how about we mix inn some odd time-signatures into it all?
    This lesson is for the most part in 7/8, but there's a few 9/8 bars too in it.

    Techniques you will encounter in this lesson; Alternate picking (as the title implies), stringskipping and small traces of downstrokes and sliding.

    Hopefully this lesson will be of use for those looking to expand their time-signature vocabulary, and also for those who want need more alternate picking exercises :)
