Outside Picking

Outside picking makes a huge difference in terms of accuracy and ease of pick movement. The idea here is that when I switch strings, the pick is going in the direction of where the next string is.

I’m using the E Minor Pentatonic boxes 1 to 5. I’m alternating between two outside picking patterns. Look closely at my right hand to see that the pick is always on its way towards the next string I’m about to play, when I’m switching to a new string.
