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]
Here is the ascending music notation and tab.

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!
