In this lesson we pick through some melodic arpeggiation. We do this by employing chordal picking/cross picking.
The picking pattern with the plectrum is,
Down Down Down
Up Up Up
The above example is very useful to get the chordal/cross picking right hand guitar pattern down. It is just a loop that is brilliant to get a really confident 4/4 time in your picking hand.
The whole 4/4 Chordal/Cross picking melodic arpeggio pattern/piece.

In this riff/line I employ alternate Picking but I start with an upstroke for the first phrase. After that I start the remaining phrases on a down stroke.
Although this line is D altered in terms of scalic concept it could also be thought of as shifting between D minor, D Dorian and Eb Melodic Minor.
