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.

The key to understanding this is to look where the little target tones/enclosure motif/melody starts.
Here we have two.
The first is “OFF” the BEAT
and the second is “ON” the beat
Example 1: “Off Beat” classic target tone/enclosure set-up
Example 2: “On the beat” and in the bar set-up in the improvised line [Target tone/Enclosure]
What you will notice is that the Chord tones are “on” the beat [Strong] whilst the chromatic or unessential notes are “Off” the beat.
This is the key to how it works and how to create beautiful flowing lines easily!
