LESSON #15 - Introduction to "Economic Picking / Directional Picking"

Lesson Series by Todd Simpson

In this lesson we will introduce what is called "Economic Picking / Directional Picking". Put simply, this is just using two ore more down or up strokes instead of alternate picking. The lesson will also serve as an introduction to sweeping picking in that we are using down strokes combined with hammer ons/pull offs, in a limited way which is the basis for sweep picking. Take a look at the tablature.
