Economy Picking Bootcamp is a step by step course, designed to help you take your picking skills to the highest level.
It doesn't matter where you are right now in terms of picking technique. This method breaks down economy picking into its fundamental elements, and makes sure that you master every little "sub-skill" before progressing to the next.
- Play along with fun and effective drills.
- Learn the correct picking angles and hand positions for maximum picking efficiency.
- Easily learn the small "sub-skills" that make up this picking strategy.
- Learn to freely mix scales, arpeggios, and other structures, and improvise creatively, without having to think about picking technique.
- Lifetime Access (including future updates) on all your devices.

Play along to fun drills that will help you build these 4 skills into your muscle memory. Each drill starts slowly, but progressively reaches very high speeds, allowing you to stretch your abilities as far as you want to go!

I am a music geek fascinated with learning new things, and improving my own guitar skills, but I'm also very passionate about helping others do the same! After studying in the Greek National Conservatory, and Berklee College of Music, I began performing and teaching privately in 2001. Since then, I have developed new methods for effective musical learning, and my mission with String Systems is to share them with the world :-)
