Zakway Wyldsteen - a hybrid picking lesson combining the styles of Zakk and Yngwie

Hey everybody,

I just did this lesson for my youtube channel. It's a hybrid picking lick that employs a Zakk Wylde picking pattern and a diminished motif reminiscent of Yngwie Malmsteen. It's a great picking pattern to have in your bag of tricks, and easily adaptable to any scale (especially pentatonics). Hope you dig it!

Not a bad little lick there. The only way to improve the lesson, I would say, is to up pick the return (all your strokes are downstrokes when hybrid picking). That is a bit hellish though, mixing alternate picking with hybrid picking can become quite difficult (and is a good form of self torture). We all know you slay me regardless though

Agreed. Arduous but beneficial.

Cool, thanks for the feedback, guys. It would be a nice technical challenge to try and alternate pick the notes on the G string, although I do like the sound of the hammer ons for this lick.

I agree completely, I meant on the return from using your finger though. The trick is it forces you to minimize the movement of your hybrid picking, more of a bend at the 2nd knuckle, classical approach than some other hybrid pickers use.

I am certainly not an advocate for picking every note, nor do I have nearly enough picking skills to try

Ah, I see what you're saying. Cool, I might try that. I'm always looking for ways to cut down on wasted movement. I saw Yngwie in concert once, and that was the biggest thing I took away from watching him play. No matter how fast he goes, his picking hand is always relaxed and in control, no extraneous movement. It's amazing how easy he makes it all look. I definitely want to do a lesson on general picking technique tips and tricks sometime in the future that addresses this sort of thing.
