Speed picking is a technique involves picking every note. This is a very important guitar technique for the modern playing. In this lesson I have paid attention basically to alternate picking – it means movements of the right hand are as follows : “down-up-down-up etc.”.
This requires perfect co-ordination on the right and left hands. They must be absolutely synchronized to play cleanly all notes at high speeds.
Example 5 : Very useful exercise for playing on high strings. Again 4 note-per-strings warming-up.
Example 6 : This exercise contains both speed picking and string skipping techniques. Try with it to practice fast playing skipping the strings. It will helps to play arpeggios and scales by very exciting ways.
Example 7 : “Monster speed picking lick” is a combination exercise! Enjoy it!
