Watch the String Skipping: Level 2 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: String Skipping
Shifting the time signature to 5/4, Workout #2 throws a Lydian Augmented scale at you chopped up in sevenths. Whether you play this with alternate or hybrid picking, you definitely have your work cut out for you on this one. One approach that will smooth things out no matter what picking technique you go with will be a solid fret hand rolling technique. You'll play these sequences in what I call basic forms - same direction of intervals on the ascent and descent of the scale. The advantage to basic forms is you'll always be playing on the outside pivot.
