Jacky Vincent: United Stringdom - Alternate and Economy Picking and Combining Sweep Picking with Fretboard Tapping
|Falling in Reverse Jacky Vincent|
Two of my essential techniques for playing the fastest lead passages in my performances with Falling in Reverse are alternate picking and economy picking. As the names imply, alternate picking involves alternating between downstrokes and upstrokes, while economy picking entails reducing, or economizing, the amount of pick-hand motion used to perform single-note runs while picking every note.
This month, I'd like to show you some examples of both picking techniques and demonstrate how I integrate them to play a fast three-bar passage from my guitar solo in the song "Goodbye Graceful."

Hi, and welcome to my new Guitar World instructional column. Over the next few months, I'll be demonstrating to you many of the different techniques I use for the riffs and solos that I play with my band, Falling in Reverse. Hopefully, these riffs will prove useful and inspire you to discover some unique musical ideas of your own.
Some of my favorite musical sounds are those that consist of long, flowing arpeggios, whether they are present in rock, classical, electronic music or metal. The manner by which most guitar players execute lengthy arpeggiated lines is by using sweep picking, wherein the pick is dragged in a single motion across two or more adjacent strings using either a downstroke or an upstroke
