well I have to admit to that as well!! haha I have been playing a long time and I am in that category too. Imagine setting such a high standard in your early 20’s?
Thanks Troy for the response!
It’s interesting your playing of that lick sounds more like Alcatrazz Yngwie than Yngwie does during the lesson you have selected!
For the longest time I have assumed it was all alt picking, and I can actually play the lick somewhat cleanly using alternate picking. but it doesn’t sound the same. So that would go to what you are explaining that it is combo of techniques being used.
To be honest, economy picking does my head in! Having alternate picked for YEARS, pushing through the string to start the next string on a downstroke feels beyond weird.
I will play around with it focusing on just one rule - start the new string on a downstoke and see if I can get closer.
I would add this also explains why there is no youtubers (that I have seen) that have got these turnaround licks down.
Most are alt picking it to varying degrees of accuracy. And it doesn’t sound right.
