Hey, welcome to the forum!

Thanks Im glad to be here !

Reading your answers, Economy picking is one of those techniques that tends to be harder at first for people that have mostly stuck with alternate picking. It’s one technique where (at least I believe) is best to slow down a little and get very even, because it’s already naturally a very fast technique for most people so speeding up isn’t really a problem, but really tricky for some to play evenly. Anyway you will find quite a few economy licks on the site.
