Alternate Picking Exercise

Here's a fun little alternate picking guitar exercise for today's guitar lick. I've been working hard to alleviate pain from an old wrist injury so I played this with a wrist brace on which restricted my movement a bit. It's a bit messy in parts so when you go to practice this yourself start slow with a metronome and gradually work up speed. It is all 16th notes and generally I used alternate picking. A traditional classical style thumb position is probably what most guitar players would favor for this type of lick. I didn't include a slow video for this lick but if you find your struggling to figure out a fingering or the tab send me a message and I'll record a slower version if need be. Cheers.
