Post-Rock Picking Workout

Nothing incredibly difficult about this, but with the addition of a 7/8 meter and adaptive picking pattern, this will give the picking hand a good workout.

Practice Tips

  • Whilst it makes sense to use strict alternate picking for most arpeggiation sequences, there are times when it's better to use a different way instead. This idea benefits from 2 initial down strokes for the beginning of every 2 bar sequence, which feels more comfortable and balanced in my experience. Of course, you can use strict alternate picking, too, if you prefer; that's for you to decide.
