  • Hello GMC! :) and welcome to my 2nd lesson here. Today we are going to take a look at how to improve and tighten up the picking.

    The piece consists mainly of alternate picking, but there are also some short 16th triplet runs which utilize some simple and basic usage of economy picking.

    So in short; We are going to try to improve alternate picking stability, but also look at how we can mix in some economy picking.

    The goal here is to PICK every note!

    In case you are unfamiliar with economy picking, then it can be briefly explained as a way of reducing right hand movement and avoiding jumping over the string before picking it, as often happens when just using alternate picking. Check out the other videos in this lesson for a more close-up demonstration and explanation.

    I have included 3 backingtracks in 120, 100 and 80 BPM, and a guitar-pro file.

    Hope you will get some use out of this lesson :)
