Alternate Picking Practice Variation #2

One Note Per String

This is the final exercise in this series, where you'll practice crosspicking, or just playing one note per string.

Crosspicking is an essential technique in guitar playing and it's basically just a banjo roll using a flat pick. In this exercise, you're going up and down through all of the strings. Focus on timing and clarity. All of the notes should be a similar volume.
