Watch the Alternate Picking: Level 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Alternate Picking Workouts

This second Level 1 Alternate Picking Workout will make string set shifts on the same fret in the V position all the while playing the outside pivot technique. One way to look at this is when you make the shift from the top note of the A5 (7th fret E on the 5th string) that's played with an upstroke you simply are playing a downstroke on the same string to play the root note of the D5 (5th fret D on the 5th string). Otherwise, it's just outside pivoting.
