Today we look at employing alternate picking with chords on the guitar.
The alternate picking group of 4 semiquavers [16ths] notes start with an upstroke. “Up Down Up Down”. This little lick/motif joins the two chords together and creates a compositional movement.
Here is the descending music notation and tab. [Chords and alternate picking]

This little alternate picking guitar exercise is taken from John Mclaughlin’s acoustic jazz fusion C.D “Belo Herozonte”.
Although this is a simple and short exercise it displays the way to open up and extend long fluid alternate picking improvised jazz fusion guitar lines.
You can either employ orthodox fingering or the fingering that I use.
