PLEASE WATCH VIDEO BELOW FOR DETAILED TECHNIQUE:
Open string exercise. Pluck “Down up” repetitively alternating strictly with the guitar pick. The plucking comes from the wrist. Also, do this exercise the other way with, “Up Down” alternating with the guitar plectrum. This is the basis of strict alternate picking right hand guitar technique.
1 string alternate picking “Even” guitar Pattern/grouping of notes. ‘Down Up” etc
With “Odd” groupings of notes notice that every time you pluck the pattern again you will be starting on a different picking stroke than you started with previously. So, “Down up down” will then become “Up down up”.
Exercise: “Odd” grouping crossing 2 strings on the guitar.
Odd = Every time you cross the strings you are starting on a different stroke than you started on previously
3 notes per string “Odd” pattern crossing all 6 guitar strings alternate picking starting on a down stroke with the guitar pick. [Ascending and Descending].
“Even” grouping: Crossing all 6 strings ascending and descending employing strict alternate picking right hand guitar technique.
EVEN= Every time you cross the strings it will always be with the same stroke
