  • Welcome to the Alternate Picking Workout 3!

    Alternate picking etude combined with string skipping. Next step if you already feel comfortable with medium speed picking on one string or those close to each other. Recommended once you're done with Alternate Picking Workout 2 lesson. Medium speed will allow to focus on right hand behavior. Make sure you DO NOT execute any of those licks with economy picking, legato or hybrid picking. It's all about that constant down and up picking to get biggest profit from the lesson.
