Syn’s Tips

I know that this can be very difficult because sometimes you are leading with Upstrokes, and sometimes you are leading with Downstrokes. Just be confident that you will get it, it just takes time!

Maybe some of you can share some Alternate Picking Exercises in the "Lesson Comments" section below that might help everyone out.

Ale Algara I have been playing with economy for almost 8 years. before this one friend told me that I needed to practice alternate, I did but I feel slower in everything. Alternate and economy because I get confused using them both at the same time. Any advice?

Dan Shipway Any tips on getting hands in sync, I have grasped the basics but when I get faster it tends to get pretty sloppy (Some notes don't ring out properly). Any help would be appreciated.

Ale Algara In my case, I use metronome, as slow as I can get it right, then turn up the speed (sorry for bad english)
