Hey GMC'ers! In this lesson I’ve composed a musical example based upon “Bach moch” from Greg Howe’s album Five. It occurred to me that it would be a good idea to combine alternate and hybrid picking techniques.
We can analyze it easily into two general parts: The first one using alternate picking and the second one by the use of hybrid picking. The first part is basically a combination of scales around C tonal center key. Pay attention to the irregularity of the notes on the strings. This will be very useful to break with the traditional three-note-per-string patterns which will help you a lot with your phrasing.
The second part is strictly about hybrid picking. Here I starts combining a C6 arpeggio and C diminished to continue with an Am7 arpeggio and a similar pattern to the first one. The ending has a cycle of diminished arpeggios on different string groups. Pay attention to the different pick and finger movements of the right hand.
