This question comes from Liam who is having some trouble with alternate picking runs. He’s fine going from the high to low strings, but changing direction seems to require a great deal more concentration and is causing him to trip up. This is a tough problem and I totally understand the frustration, but I do have a solution!
Long standing School of McRock member Joey submitted this really interesting question. There are a couple of approaches I take to songwriting, so let me break those down for you and hopefully give you some insights and inspiration!
