What You'll Learn

Alternate Picking for Guitar

All students of guitar need to develop their picking skills in order to be able to play familiar songs.  Alternate picking has evolved as the most widely recognized skill related to a guitarist’s precision and speed.  This course aims to help new guitarists develop their precision and speed through a specific method, outlined step-by-step.

Where You’ll Start…

The course starts with a look at how to use a common scale (minor pentatonic – tab included) to begin refining your alternate picking skills.  The course demonstrates and explains how you can use tempo subdivisions of 1/8ths, 1/16ths and triplets to increase your speed and improve your coordination.

Faster, Better Guitar Picking

Playing faster is just one of the benefits of practicing alternate picking.  This course will provide you with a flexible exercise routine that can work for any player at any speed.  All you’ll need is a daily practice time and your metronome.  Start slow and build up – that’s how it works.  Furthermore this course is based on the same private lessons that I’ve been teaching for years and years.

When You’re Finished…

By the time you’ve completed this course, you’ll likely see a dramatic improvement in your actual alternate picking.  However, the long-term benefit of this course lies in having your own, flexible exercise that can continue to serve you indefinitely!  The step-by-step process in this course will enable the beginner to develop while also allowing the intermediate player to improve further.  Whatever you’re level is currently, the model we’ll go over will undoubtedly help you improve!

Needed help

I’ve never gotten how notes work. You taught me to count easier, but I still need tine to speed up my picking. So, fun course and I’ll keep on working at it.
