In addition to the main transcription, I’ve provided three exercises (p40) that will give you a good foundation and provide some further challenges to John’s double picking technique. One of the biggest difficulties for any repetitive alternate picking is consistency of timing and technique. These tend to go hand in hand of course, so any inaccuracies, particularly in the picking, often result in a lack of coordination between the two hands. Accuracy from the picking hand is crucial, so it’s important to always know ‘where you are’ in any sequence or phrase, rather than simply aiming for lots of speed. It often helps to add picking accents (try experimenting with strong and weak beats) as well as fooling the brain by using odd number sequences (Exercise 3).
