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!
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!
