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

This second Level 2 workout takes the concept of workout #1 and ups the ante a bit with playing two different scales over the course of six strings. You'll start off with the same A mixolydian fingering you did in #1 and will continue to play the same fingerings on the 3rd and 5th strings as well. What happens on the 2nd, 4th and 6th strings is the other scale - E mixolydian. In essense, you're playing a I-V change on each string pair starting with the top 1-2 set. You'll play the same open string peppered with hammer-ons approach along with the aforementioned resting points to break up the onslaught of 16ths.
