Watch the Alternate Picking: Level 2 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Alternate Picking Workouts

Contiuning with the "pivot" approach where the pick attacks the string on the outside and inside borders you'll play through a full range vertical position spanning four frets that again has you playing a series of perfect 4ths. This time you'll delve into making string set shifts while playing the outside pivot technique on the way up and the inside pivot technique on the way down. You'll have four positions you'll play within - V, I, VIII and XII. Simply continue on with the techniques you've established in the previous Workout and be sure to always lock in with me. It's all about timing when developing your chops.
