  • In today's lesson, we'll study a piece that should get your alternate picking chops up to speed. We'll be using mostly 3 notes per string scale positions in order to use the fast 16th triplet runs. To make things interesting, we'll use a combination of 16th triplet notes (6 notes per beat) and 16th notes (4 notes per beat).

    Combining both of these rhythm segments will create something very upbeat that you should use in your own improvisations. Make sure to study the following scales before you go through the examples and strive for precision before speed. Speed will come after.

    Have fun!
