Because I couldn't come up with a better post title. I have Chop Builder, Rock Discipline, Shred Guitar Manifesto, and Wild Stringdom. Let's say I want to work on one book, let's say RD. Do I play all of the exercises as a sort of workout and increase by 1 bpm the next day? Or do I play a certain section and slowly increase the tempo and attempt to reach a target tempo by the end of practice? How would you recommend practicing? I have my alt picking up to ~280 bpm (because I played a lot of TBDM a few years back) but I have no control when I pick across strings. This info probably won't help, but anyway I need your best alternate picking exercises, particularly those that go across strings. Your help is GREATLY appreciated.
