Alternate Picking Overview – Lesson 73

Lesson by: SynGates.com
In this lesson we discuss alternate picking techniques and its importance to your playing.

Syn's tips

Really work on this stuff slowly and on one string at first until you develop some speed and it’s become comfortable. Then apply this to scales, exercises, etc. and then onto soloing to the backing tracks. Really focus on keeping the proper technique the whole time because it’s very easy to forget about technique in the middle of playing but that’s when you start grooving in bad habits which are so hard to undo.

Upload videos of yourself showing this stuff off! Let us know how you learned or are working on the material and what worked for you and what didn’t. Everybody learns differently so some bit’s of instruction work while others don’t, that’s why it’s important for everyone of all levels to get on the "Lesson Comments" section below and share their insight!
