Picking variations and alternatives
Up and down picking
The first note is to be downpicked and the last note is to be up-picked.
Each of the four notes are to be alternate picked (down- & up-picked) very rapidly and continuously.
Palm mute by resting the edge of picking-hand’s palm on the strings near the bridge.
Drag the pick across the strings shown with a single sweep. Often used to augment a rake’s last note.
Play the notes of the chord by strumming across the relevant strings in the direction of the arrow head.
