LESSON #26 - Asymmetrical Patterns on Symmetrical Shapes (Alternate Picking/Economic Picking)

Lesson Series by Todd Simpson

In this lesson we are going to simplify the shape we are using and focus on generating speed using our "back and forth" approach. This will be a bit of a challenge in that the number of notes per string varies in this lesson. The purpose of this is to confuse your fingers a bit so that they adapt to playing asymmetrical patterns and shapes. For this lesson feel free to use either Alternate Picking and or Economic Picking depending on what feels better. The goal is to adapt to the asymmetrical nature of the picking pattern instead of focusing on AP/Economic picking. Lets take a look at the tablature.
