Beginner Lesson for Alternate Picking On The Guitar

Updated: Sep 29, 2022

Learning to alternate pick is one of the most important techniques you need to learn to play the guitar.

This video supplements a chapter from my book where I go into great detail to get you on the right track.

In this video I teach you the riff from the Peter Gunn Theme. This is a great riff to learn as it's all on one string so great for beginners. It also used all your fingers too in your fretting hand so a great exercise for both your picking and your fretting hand.

In this riff I will get you to focus on keeping a finger over each fret in the fretting hand and keeping your picking motion to a minimum for a more economic movement in your picking hand. This will help you develop speed in both hands as you move forward with your guitar playing.

Please check out my book where I go into this technique and so much more in great detail. Every chapter and technique has a song to learn which will cement everything I teach you. The book comes with 9 hours of video lessons and demonstrations as well as audio files for you to practice and play along to.
