Guitarcast | Pick Power

Guitarists - take control of your pick technique. Paul Mehling has developed a powerful series of exercises and practice regimens that will help all plectrum (flatpick) guitarists play with greater strength, speed, expressiveness and authority.

Paul provides many paths to success for players at all levels. He shows you the basics - how to grip the pick and maintain proper hand and arm positions for fluid playing and to avoid tension and fatigue. He then takes you through a graduated series of chord and single string exercises to get your mind and hand working together. These include strumming and damping, scales, chromatic exercises, "speed blasts," arpeggios, tremolo, sweep picking and much more.

Whether, like Paul Mehling, you are into Gypsy Jazz, or you play bluegrass, rock or swing, this lesson will give you the tools you'll need to get your rhythm strong and your lead picking fast and accurate.
