    Today I’m going to show you guys a really cool warm up arpeggio exercise that includes: sweep picking (both ascending and descending), slides, taps, economy picking, bending and vibrato all wrapped in one lick.

    So if you’re looking to work on multiple techniques all in one this is the perfect lick for you!

    In this lesson I break down a diminished lick which makes heavy use of economy picking.

    As well as breaking down the lick I also explain why I chose to use economy picking to play it, and how much easier it is to play the lick at speed by using this technique. I even demonstrate just how much more difficult it would be to attempt this lick without economy picking (it’s tough!) and I’ve included some cool exercises to help improve your economy picking chops.
