Ids Schiere I probably will instantly sweep this but I'll try to do the alternate picking way too!

Dave Rowles This is awesome, great teaching PG ! I spent time practicing the first part and had stumbled into a triplet pattern but you ironed that out when I listened to the next section. Thanks

James Stocker how do you pick that fast with out accidentally strumming the other notes in the arpeggio?? Im guessing just LOADS of practice?

Jérémie Thompson Saw that just like you! Nice to see some exercises that actually can make a nice intro for a solo!

Luminous Dark Wait, Syn is alternate picking those arpeggios!?!? At that speed? Damn, that's intense.

Anton Dnestrovskiy Try alternate picking The Glass Prison (Dream Theater) intro solo... That thing seems even more impossible and yet Petrucci (aka God) does it every night like its nothing.

Krzysztof Kartasinski I love how this motive sounds. Maybe I'm wrong but it reminds me of a classical music a bit. Just beautiful.

Anton Dnestrovskiy Well classical music involves a lot of arpeggios!
