Guitar Techniques - - PL&AY: PICKING -

This ex­er­cise in­tro­duces the age-old stum­bling block of al­ter­nate pick­ing: string cross­ing. As you cross to the third string, the pre­ced­ing down-pick and fol­low­ing up-pick both need to travel fur­ther in or­der to pick the third string and then to move back ready to sound the fourth string. Start this ex­er­cise well be­low tempo so you can re­ally fo­cus on play­ing with min­i­mal pick move­ment. Now try it again start­ing on an ‘up’ pick.
