Picking 3

Animated Picking 3 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is the 3rd exercise from the Core Skills section on Picking.

Notice that the picking dots in the ActionTab change to show you the direction of each stroke.

The picking here is simple - constant down / upstrokes repeated. It is important to learn picking using constant down and upstrokes like this. When playing at speed it is this constant down / up picking action that affords the highest economy of movement for high speed playing.

Keep your wrist flexible and close to the string you need to play. This means you are less likely to overstrike and accidentally pick adjacent strings!
