Three notes-per-string.

We are going to run a little over the fretboard using the previous ideas. Picking three notes per string makes easier to increase our speed than any other linear picking technique. Play all the examples in sextuplets at 200bpm or faster (of course, start at, lets say at 80bpm, and make it faster when you fell comfortable with that speed).

You have to play the 4th note of the sextuplet on the string with an upstroke, no matter how uncomfortable is now. You can also exaggerate your right hand motion (or left if you are left-handed) to acostrumbrate yourself to the alternate-picking technique. The first run is up the fretboard.

I inadvertently skipped an A note on the A string, you should play it, of course.

The entire run is in A minor. I discovered the way to update my lessons, so next page will be running down the fretboard, then string-skipping patterns, then a complete PGs style solo, so, stay tuned...
