About this lesson
Most students manage to get comfortable with picking fairly easily so you might feel picking exercises aren't necessary. However once your student actually tries out exercises like these it's pretty obvious how much of an impact it can have on their abilities. The exercises in this lesson covers a few different picking styles such as economy, alternate, and tremolo as well as other exercises focused on string skipping and rhythm grouping. The included lesson instructions will walk you through how to explain these exercises to your student.
