Week 1 - Alternate Picking Mechanics

August 13th at 8:00pm EST (FINISHED)

The second session will introduce students to using the alternate picking sequence over multiple strings. I will also introduce the students to the Ionian and Dorian scale positions which we will use to build interesting technical alternate picking ideas. Each examples will focus on attacking each set of strings with a downward motion.

Week 8 - Sweeping

October 1st at 8:00pm EST

Session 8 will introduce students to the sweeping technique. I will break down the technique and show them what the left hand should be doing and what the right hand should be doing independently from each other first. I will then show them how to synchronize both hands with a couple licks using the major and minor triads.

Week 9 - Economy Picking

October 8th at 8:00pm EST

This week we will study the economy picking technique. I will explain how odd numbers result in continuing in the direction the lick started in. I will then explain how even numbers change that direction. We will study a few exercises before moving on to a longer ascending and descending economy picking sequence that the students will need to work on.

Week 10 - Going Beyond With Sequences

October 15th at 8:00pm EST

In this final session I will encourage students to go further by creating their own sequences. I will give them a few tips to simplify lakes that seem complex first. I will end by giving the students three sequence ideas using all the different techniques we have covered during the boot camp.
