switched over from playing bass to playing guitar, i played for a good 4 years, anyways
my left hand is a lot faster and a lot more...talented? i guess i don't know the word

anyways i'm having trouble with alternate picking and such, i'm very slow and inaccurate when switching strings, can someone give me some good exercises to do
Check the lessons section on UG. I've seen some lessons on there for exercises and tips on alternate picking and whatnot.
