Economy Picking – The 3-1-3 Pattern – Lesson 78

Lesson by: SynGates.com

Lesson description

In this lesson we show you the 3-1-3 pattern over a simple Pentatonic scale.

Syn's tips

I use the 3-1-3 for pentatonics all of the time! When you really delve into this technique, you will find an entire universe of tricks and licks that sound other worldly! And we will get there, be patient! Get the basics down for now!

Apply this to all of the other scales you know that are 3 notes per string. This is why I’ve learned as many scales as possible in that formula because it is extremely conducive to Eco picking.

Practice to a metronome and backing tracks and if you are having trouble, upload a video of the issue to the "Discussion Thread" below so we can all help you figure this stuff out.

Don’t get frustrated, this will all come to you in time! It’s a process and one that should be enjoyed so take breaks when you need, and just jam to the backing tracks without worrying about anything, Just Play!
