So I originally joined this forum to get help trying to play single-escape lines, with a goal of playing Eric Johnson lines fluidly. I have made a ton of progress on that goal as I’ve worked on my upstroke-escape technique for almost a year now! Playing quite comfortably at speeds of 160-170 bpm at this point.
However, I am now at music school, so a lot of my guitar practice is not simply focused on what I want to play. My teacher is a very strict alternate-picker only, and very good at it, but he’s not very good at teaching me how to do it. He doesn’t want me using any economy picking (even though I still do so in my own time), and his “best” advice is the dreaded, “START SLOW”. Lol…
So anyway, I’m hoping you guys here can help me learn to alternate pick with a double-escape motion. My example here is me playing a single position G major scale, trying to alternate pick everything. In the last part, you can see I slip into my USX habits a little bit. I appreciate any help or feedback!
