Crosspicking (Part 1): Down Down Up Style
CATEGORY: Online Guitar Lessons

In today’s episode of “Gurzi Guitar Sessions,” Mike gives us an introduction to crosspicking… specifically the “down down up” method of picking which aims to add variety to your strumming pattern. Good luck!

Mike came to us wanting to do some sort of featured guitar lick of the week. He has some great chops, and wanted to share some of his styles, techniques, and guitar knowledge with you... for FREE! In this playlist (25+ videos), you'll learn the basics of picking, chord phrasing, chord progressions, scale structures, and more!!

Mike is an active freelance guitarist from Southern California, but now makes his home in Bozeman, MT. He has been playing guitar for some 40 years. His styles range from flatpicking fiddle tunes, traditional bluegrass, jazz, gypsy jazz and swing.
