Watch the Flat Picking Solos online guitar lesson by Joe Robinson from Electric Synergy

Flat picking on a Telecaster - doesn't get better than this. Basically, I mostly do up and down alternate picking with the right hand. It's a wonderful technique for playing solos in a country style. How I understand it, a great exercise for developing this technique is just going up and down a chromatic scale in order to build up your right hand speed. Try accenting the first note on every string as you go through it, practicing with a metronome and start speeding it up as you develop it.

Stay relaxed, and once you've got it up to speed let's move on to the next lesson where we'll apply it to a performance study in the next lesson.
