say i were to play the notes in a E major chord... then after follow up by playin the notes in a G major chord


shud i start the first note of the G major chord with an upstroke...

|---------0-----------0------------|
|-------1-----------0--------------|
|-----2-----------0----------------|
|---2-----------2------------------|
|-0-----------3--------------------|
--D D D D D D U D D D D D



or a downstroke?

|---------0-----------0------------|
|-------1-----------0--------------|
|-----2-----------0----------------|
|---2-----------2------------------|
|-0-----------3--------------------|
--D D D D D D D D D D D D



i was just thinking about it and thought its easier to just do an upstroke on the first note on the C while i'm raising my hand after picking the last note on the E

but i'm really not sure... what is the correct way??

the note at the end of the arpeggio should be upstroked to bring your hand back up. so upstroke the open high e and upstroke the high e fretted at the 3rd fret

There's no C in either of those chords.

Alternate Pick


Why on earth would you alternate pick that? its either an arpeggio or sweep, therefore making down stroke the best type of picking.

lol yea there isnt... i was orignally planning to put a C but i really wasnt paying attention... so i happened to write that
#11
uhh im confused, it seems to me you just steadily sweep the arpeggiated chord and then bring you pick back to the 6th string and then sweep the next arpeggiated chord... am i missing something? is there some other problem?

i would play it all down that looks easiest depending on the speed of the chords
#13
I would alternate it, only because I stick to alternate picking. However, if you're playing it as a sweep, yeah you'd do all down strokes. I just find the DUDUDUDUDUDU makes things more precise.

but it looks more like an arpeggio rhythm riff along the lines of many ballad and easiest way i know is to play it slowly using down strokes so the notes dont sound like a strummed chord technically thats sweeping but with this u can all the frets at once because its an open chord u dont have to lift yiur finger off each string as u play it do what feels best to u all i can do is tell you what i think is best and still is entirely up to how u feel about each approach
