Economy Picking Bootcamp is a step by step course, designed to help you take your picking skills to the highest level.

It doesn't matter where you are right now in terms of picking technique. This method breaks down economy picking into its fundamental elements, and makes sure that you master every little "sub-skill" before progressing to the next.

  • Play along with fun and effective drills.
  • Learn the correct picking angles and hand positions for maximum picking efficiency.
  • Easily learn the small "sub-skills" that make up this picking strategy.
  • Learn to freely mix scales, arpeggios, and other structures, and improvise creatively, without having to think about picking technique.


The four fundamentals of economy picking:

Single String Picking
Inside String Crossings
Sweep String Crossings
Sweep Picking Arpeggios

Play along to fun drills that will help you build these 4 skills into your muscle memory. Each drill starts slowly, but progressively reaches very high speeds, allowing you to stretch your abilities as far as you want to go!

Here's a sample drill from the Descending Technique Practice Routine:
