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

There's a few ways to approach alternate picking across string, but as we're learning here, the way to start out is picking on the "outsides" of the strings and eventually progress into playing on the "insides". While the three Level 1 Workouts that focused on almost exclusively playing perfect 5ths on the bottom two strings, this Level 2 set of Workouts will make use of perfect 4ths on the E and A string (first Workout) as well across the neck (second and third Workouts).
