Watch the Alt. Picking: 2 online guitar lesson by Dave Celentano from Classical Concepts for Rock Guitar
For the lower section of "Prelude in C Minor" we'll develop alternate picking beginning with a down stroke. Like the higher section, this too uses outside picking and should be rehearsed slowly and perfectly before attempting to speed up. Use a palm muting here to mute the lower strings and give them a bit more definition. This is especially helpful when using a lot of distortion or high gain!
