    Thanks for the video. How do you think alternate picking fairs with economy picking?

  4. Richard B. Davis says:

    We need more videos on us beginners on picking please . We can’t learn cords and lead, without proper picking.

    Hi, thanks for the great video. Is there a reason you are resting your palm against the strings while you pick?


  9. Steven Santos says:

    People, he didn’t make this video just for you. If my son wants to learn he has certain questions and this guy probably answered them and more. Don’t waste your time to watch it let alone comment. Maybe YOU talk too much when you comment. The info is free and you could be more appreciative. If not, stfu and move on.
