EX­AM­PLE 9 FAST AL­TER­NATE PICK­ING STYLE

TRACK 20

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

While not widely revered for his fast play­ing, Car­los is no slouch when it comes to play­ing 16th notes, es­pe­cially at quite brisk tem­pos such as this. He uses al­ter­nate pick­ing when play­ing fast lines so make sure you stick to the pick­ing pat­terns in­di­cated. The flurry of 32nd notes in bar 6 is typ­i­cal of his more fre­netic mo­ments, so you may want to slow this down first! No­tice how the four-note group­ings in bar 7 are shifted onto the off beat in the fol­low­ing bar by re­peat­ing the first two notes of the pat­tern; a ef­fec­tive solo­ing tool when play­ing 16th phras­ing.
