This is the free pdf that comes with my YouTube Video:
in the last weeks i had some struggle with my alternate picking again. That happens pretty much regularly twice a year or so..... This etude is out of my practice routine and i decided to make it available for free. I think its a nice sounding exercise and i hope you will have fun practicing it.
For me alternate picking is a weak point in my playing. I never got over a certain limit (16th @ 110-120 bpm) not even on a single string. For me it makes no difference if a go fullspeed on one string or multiple string with odd number of notes per string. My max. picking speed is pretty much the same:D Maybe thats because of what troy grady calls "string hopping", i dont know. But i have to use different techniques for higher tempos like a mixture of legato and rare picking. But the higher the tempo the more critical even rare picking gets.
Thats why i am curious to know what your take on my etude is. Im sure that there are people out there who can pick this at 200bpm or whatever:D Looking forward to your takes! Tag me on instagram!
Hope you're all well! Arne
