Overall Rating: 4.8 (of 5)
This exercise is recommend for just alternate picking, it doesn't do much for legato. A pattern similar to this is used in the solo for Technical Difficulties by Paul Gilbert. This exercise combines using triplets with the pentatonic scale. When you are playing this peice, to keep your timing good, start slow and repeating the numbers 1 2 and 3 for each note you pick. For example, 5th fret on E would be (one) 8th fret on E (two) 5th fret on A (three), 7th fret on D (one) 5th fret on D (two) 7th fret on D (three) then move to the a string, keep the same pattern but start in the a pentaonic scale, 5th fret on A(one) 7th fret on A(two) 5th fret on d(three).
