right, i've gotten economy pretty much down pat from the start, but then i heard from friends that if i ever want to do any type of string skipping, i'll need to learn alt picking, is this true, or can i use full-on eco picking for everything?
Gah, stop with the VS threads!!!

Just learn both and you're set!
