Triplet Walk of Doom Part 1

A little practice exercise today I call the  "Triplet Walk of Doom". This is part one that ascends the neck. It is simply a chromatic triplet pattern using alternate picking. I just wrote this today so I have some distance to go myself with the BPM. The nice thing about this exercise is that it can be used by beginner and  more advanced players to work on their alternate picking and string skipping. At higher tempos it can be challenging to execute properly and beginners will get a real workout from navigating the string skips and maintaning consistent alternating up and down strokes with the guitar pick. Uses Double Drop D Standard Tuning

Have a great and musical weekend.
