All of the Picking Patterns consist of “Down Down Up” with the guitar plectrum. Below you will see this basic pattern in a repeated loop.
In the next exercise we will move this basic “Down Down Up” Cross Picking guitar pattern along the fingerboard
Next, we can employ Augmented and Diminished triads in triplets which is a very King Crimson Frippesque 70’s guitar sound/technique.
We will now cross pick with the plectrum and employ an “Open string” concept.
Now, we will develop this open string cross picking with a variation exercise
This last pattern doesn’t employ any open string play but is useful in regards to the string crossing movement.

These are a few concepts taken from the compositional thinking of composer Karlheinz Stockhausen.
The first idea is a 5/4 Vamp. This employs alternate picking starting on an upstroke.
The next idea is to employ an atonal line in triplets moving from the “Bass strings to Treble strings”
The next ideas are a variation of the beginning vamp but they employ semitones as the answer effect.
Lastly we employ our old friend the atonal triplet figure again:
This are just a few basic ideas from Stockhausen which light up the road for creative guitar thinking.

Today is just a short blog but a very useful one in regards to improvisation because the cycle of 4ths crops up all over the place especially in standards.
Cycle of 4ths backing jam track and chart [Downwards 5ths] Chord Chart. [All major keys].
If you look at the diagram below you will see the cycle of 5ths moving clockwise and the cycle of 4ths moving anti clockwise.
