    Alternate Picking with String Skipping Level 1

    £14.99

    Hybrid Picking Level 1

    £14.99

    Hybrid Picking Level 2

    £14.99
    With hybrid picking, we resort to both pick and fingers to pluck the strings. In this second level we'll make an all-out effort to keep the attacks of your notes very similar, given the fact that the pick and your fingers will inevitably never sound precisely the same.

    String Skipping Level 2

    £14.99
    String skipping is a great technique to play faster and break the routine of scaling up and down the strings. In this second level, you'll refine the four note arpeggios, so that you'll enrich your riffs and improve the accuracy of your picking hand.

    Sweep picking Level 1

    £14.99
    Let's getting started with the sweep picking. With this technique your pick moves following one single direction, like it's falling through the strings with a steady downstroke or upstroke motion. Very effective for playing one-note-per-string phrases, such as triad arpeggios.

    Sweep Picking Level 2

    £14.99
    The sweep picking allows you to play a series of notes on adjacent strings with a sweeping motion. You can play fluid and uniform arpeggios at high speed thanks to your pick travelling up and down through the strings.

    Tapping Level 2
