This video is made for students of the Synyster Gates Guitar School, but any guitarist can benefit from it. I demonstrate how economy picking can be practiced by playing the intro to the song Hail To The King. Although the lead guitar beyond the intro to this song is not technically economy picking, it is going to teach you the fundamentals of great picking technique. Then you can apply this to all of your playing. Once you get the basic technique down, challenge yourself to learn the intro to this song.
