Intro to Alternate Picking - Exercise 2 Intro to Alternate Picking - Exercise 4

Lick 3 is another classical sounding one. This is a lick that is used frequently among metal/shred guitar players. When played fast and cleanly it can sound really cool, and can be used to build tension at points in a solo. 

 

There is a bit of inside picking in this lick when changing between strings. This can feel a bit weird at first, but can become a very useful technique for rhythm and lead playing.
