Playing the guitar requires both hands, but many players tend to neglect the right hand and confine it just to strumming or basic picking. Here are two patterns that will help you stock up on sweet, delicious right hand muscle-memory.

Pay close attention to the stroke signs because these patterns have been perfectly configured to build speed, even though it may be awkward in the beginning.

Guitar Crosspicking 4string-06

Master these patterns on different sets of strings, not just the ones listed here. And once you have that mastered, alter the patterns so that you are forcing your pick to make even bigger jumps. It is important to develop many different variations and not just to focus on speed, speed, speed.
