Didn't you make a thread about this type of stuff the other day?


There's actually a section of the website, called lessons. Look there.
Signatures are overrated.

No. Not this one, that would be more a sweeping motion with the picking hand.

And you're obviously here because you fancy Phill.
Phill is a very attractive guy...

"I'm so tempted to sig that, Phill" - Sig it then

Unless otherwise stated, assume everything I say is in my opinion.

Wrong, it really helped my alt picking by doing it alt-picked. More cross-picking, but it still helps a lot.

Not for him, yet.

If you're gonna give him something along those lines, a string-skipping excercise with 3 notes per string would be better.

You're most likely right but it did really improve my alt-picking when I was struggling, it can still be handy.
