Weekly Guitar Technique Workout – Week 5

In this weeks technique workout I am gonna show you a couple hybrid picking exercises that can really help improve your ability to rapidly play large string to string skips on the guitar.

Hybrid picking has become such an integral part of my playing that I certainly don't know what I would do half the time without it. I find that it makes so many things on the guitar more economical to play.

I feel that if a player can develop their alternate picking, economy picking and hybrid picking to form a complete approach to right hand technique (or lefty), they are then able to play pretty much anything that comes their way in a very economical manner.

Hybrid picking may seem awkward at first, but trust me when I say that it makes many things MUCH easier to play in the long run.

Many of today's greatest players employ hybrid picking heavily in their playing including Guthrie Govan, Joe Bonamassa and countless others.

      Hey Bill, my idea for these weekly technique workout lessons is to just build up a bunch of exercises that you can practice every day. I just add a new one each week.

      So I would actually practice week one for a few minutes, then go to week two for a few minutes and so forth. That way you can work on many techniques every day. 🙂

      Hey sorry about that Bill. I hadn’t actually updated the Weekly Workout page to show the two most recent workouts. You will find weeks 6 and 7 there now.

      Here is a link to that page. https://guitarlessons365.com/guitar-technique-workout/
