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.
