Hybrid Picking Exercises 1 – Lesson 84 Brian Haner Sr. In this lesson we start you off with some simple Hybrid Picking exercises. Syn’s Tips A lot of these exercises sound great with the distortion cranked, you just don’t want to let each note ring out over the next, similar to when you sweep pick an arpeggio as opposed to strumming a chord. Practice to the metronome and backing tracks to start applying this technique to musical situations as soon as you start to get a little bit comfortable with this stuff. As always, share with us how these exercises work for you. Upload your videos in the "Lesson Comments" section below so we can all learn from one other!
