Regi Teopy I have a question, can I play this whole legato thing all downpicked? Syn plays with an upstroke so this kinda confuses me

Zé Marques I think in legato playing, since the picking doesn't matter so much, it should not make a difference.

Jake Young It's a general rule of thumb that when ascending to the high e string you downpick and when descending to the the low E you use an upstroke.. It's tricky at first, but soon you won't have to think about it. But the awesome thing about guitar is there are no real rules..just guidelines. But I would recommend trying to play it the way Syn is. It's good technique and will make you a much more rounded (and speedy) player in the long run! Playing the way the notation it's saying helps to minimize unnecessary movement..one of they main keys to shredding!! Whooo
