This 19-page book & video set is a concise guide to picking.
Graham focuses on the fundamentals of guitar picking technique: how to hold the pick, alternate picking, economy picking, arpeggio picking and how to build speed. He does this via explanations, photos and short accompanying videos to each part of the book.
Graham also shares his personal approach to picking that includes ideas he learned from Dave Kilminster back during his time in music college.
The book simplifies some of the most important parts of picking technique. That being said, it doesn’t give you any detailed practice approaches for building speed.
If you’re a logical and analytical person, this book might be interesting as a reference for you.
However, if you’re looking for detailed speed picking technique building, this might not the book for you.
All in all, this was a useful book that gave me some good food for thought. I’m looking forward to practicing the exercises & seeing how it helps me further.
Pros: An elegant collection of concepts for guitar picking.
Cons: Might feel like a very short book for some.
TLDR: Recommended for guitarists looking for picking practice concepts.

Depending on whether I dig the book/course, I’ll let you know if I do plan to review it!
I cannot guarantee a review for every submission & if I’m not too into it, I may opt not to review it. I mean, it’s better to get a good review that for me to write a bad review just because it’s not a match for the kind of stuff I dig right? :p
NOTE: All reviews reflect my honest personal opinion so be aware that I will point out both cool Pros and Cons that I see in the work. You dig?
