Josh’s Shred Zone: Alternate Picking

Here are several examples that can help your coordination with alternate picking. Alternate picking alternates “down, up” with each stroke. Start slowly, and pay close attention to string crossing. Try to angle your pick so that the trajectory misses the adjacent string. I use these as warmup exercises, and they start out feeling pretty natural under your fingers, and gradually work in a bit of a sequencing challenge as we go.

Any of that go over your head? Just play through the examples! Video coming soon.

Shoot me an e-mail for the Guitar Pro file.

Happy Shredding!
