Intro to Alternate Picking - Exercise 3 Intro to Alternate Picking - Exercise 5 (Etude)

Lick 4 is a scale run up the neck. Scales are great for practicing alternate picking. They get you used to changing strings, and the licks can easily be reversed so you can practice descending as well. In my opinion, doing ascending alternate picking licks and descending ones actually feel a lot different. You’ll have to get used to doing both, and learn how to adjust your technique for each one.
