Learn Alternate Picking Online - 3 Helpful Tips
If you're new to alternate picking and have been searching online, you probably
realize there is a heck of a lot of information out there (both free and paid). And that's a good thing to
some extent. You'll always be able to find things related to alternate picking to practice and learn.

You get the idea. Perhaps the biggest challenge of learning
alternate picking online is to filter the information effectively. And that can be a challenge, especially if
you are new to alternate picking!
With that said, here are a few tips that will help you in your quest to learn alternate picking online...
Tip #1: Set Some Goals.
This one is pretty obvious. Make sure that you have some specific goals that you would like to work
towards...and make sure that you write them down. For Example: If you are brand new to alternate picking then a

saves me from having to formulate my own lesson plan. And this also saves me a lot a time.

information may be a great approach for you. Just be aware that every hour you spend searching online is an hour
that might have been better invested in actually practicing alternate picking.
