Discuss the Mandolin lesson: Alternate Picking Exercise

My goal in this exercise is to ingrain alternate picking deep inside your brain membrane! This will increase speed, tone, and evenness in your pickin’. We do this by playing a 2-octave G and A major scale while adding a series of hammer-ons and pull-offs to CAUSE you to learn alternate picking. Follow the pick stroke arrows in the tab!
