  • Hi all and welcome to a new lesson. This time we´ll focus on string skipping and alternate picking. I´ve prepare a simple chords progression to develop these techniques with the same pattern over and over again.

    one important thing is to find a comfortable position of your Right hand to get all the strings and also to find a palm muting position to mute unwanted noises.

    There´s nothing too complex here, so I think this could be useful for many members.

    Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Used scales: A Minor.
    Meter: 4/4
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 160 bpm


    As some of you know, I use a POD xt to rec all my lessons. In my board you´ll find my presets ;) On the other hand, here´re the settings for people who want them.

    Amp model: based on Marshall JCM-800
    Drive 2
    Bass 4.9
    Middle 5
    Treble 6.8
    Presence 5

    Small room Reverb:
    Predelay 0%
    Decay 42 %
    Tone 50%
    Mix 43%

    Remember: Same settings in other gear will produce a different sound, but, as we´ve talked at the forum, this could be useful for some members, so enjoy!

    If you have any problems let me know. Take care.
    See you all around.
