Please watch video above for a detailed analysis:
Today we will look at mixing guitar picking patterns in the style of Fripp/KingCrimson
To begin with we will employ “Down Down Up” [Down Up]
Next we will add two extra notes [Down Up] in order to get back to starting on the down stroke again.
We then repeat the riff and finish this time with one note so that we can start the next phrase on an up stroke with strict alternate picking:
We now apply the strict alternate picking starting on the “Up stroke”:
After repeating the above we start the next part with alternate picking starting on a “Down Stroke“
We finish this phrase on a down stroke in order to start the next phrase starting on an “Upstroke“
Finally, we employ a “Down Down Up” triplet figure.
