Ace, all Habs fans cannot be held accountable for the things Aldor says. Half the time, I don't even know if he knows what he's saying.

Yeah i sweep to, i just like the sound of picking the notes better, but it aint really working for me that well yet :P

It's just the natural thing to sweep it, it's the most efficient way of playing this. Then I noticed it's supposed to be an alternate picking exercise.

The text describes this as a "cross-picking" exercise.

Doesn't look like any cross-picking pattern I've ever seen; in bluegrass/country crosspicking is playing fingerpick patterns with a flatpick.

Technically, you could practice a wide variety of picking techniques with it.

I always thought the spider technique was just a way to be uber-effective with your diads. Your talking the technique some of the thrash guys use, like Kerry King, right?

Mostly it is using your middle and pinky fingers to fret power chords on adjacent strings as the pointer and ring, but from there you can go anywhere.

This is different; check out the tab in the link.

When I first read the title, I thought it was going to be about that power chording technique, too, but it's not.

I saw this technique/routine on Justin's site awhile ago and put it into my practice routine. I think it helped my alternate picking speed and accuracy tremendously.

I'll start messing with it, sounds fun. It's not the spider hand thing though, that's the diads.

Meet back here in one week. Ready? Go!

Thats what i was hoping for, wan't to use it for practise/warmup before gigs and hopefully that would help me

I've used it for a long time and it's one exercise I'll possibly never stop using.

I've been using this one for a while now, havent heard it called the spider technique before though, my guitar teacher gave it to me.

Great excercise though, I used to sweep it, but realised it wasn't really of any use to me being swept so I alternate it now.

Spiders are killer for Finger Independence. I prefer the challenge of Picking them or Hammer ons From Nowhere. They are some of if not the best exercises for chop building in a short period of time.
