Economy picking technique is a hybrid of Sweep picking and Alternate picking technique. Sweep picking is a technique that allows guitarists to play exercises rapidly by picking two or more strings in the same direction (up or down) with a single stroke. Alternate picking is a guitar playing technique that employs strictly alternating down and up picking strokes in a continuous run. The aim is to minimize movement in the right hand, in contrast with alternate-picking technique.

Here is a brief list of guitarists, who used to apply EP technique in their songs: Tosin Abasi, Frank Gambale, Yngwie Malmsteen, Les Paul, Eric Johnson, Jan Akkerman, Chet Atkins, Vinnie Moore, Michael Angelo. Modern metal style guitarists: Zakk Wylde, Paul Gilbert, Bruce Bouillet, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Richie Kotzen.

By having this app, you will not need to buy a numerous guitar video lessons. This app is also giving you a material to learn rhythm (3/4, 9/4, 5/4 measures etc), as well as musical theory material (modes, arpeggio, sequences).

We now have released ECONOMY PICKING GUITAR SCHOOL FREE app, which is a copy of this app, but with ability to separately buy exercise packs at your choice. Now everyone will be able to buy what he needs for training, which will save your money.

Even Guitar Techniques has a sale sometimes and their magazines is worth gull price. $30? Ok, but that's the reason you have no sales in some countries. Zero sales should send a loud clear message. :sigh:

You seem to get what you paid for. Well thought out and frequently updated. This is cheaper than the most basic of music books/CDs/videos.

I watch the Wallimann video's for free. So I think your app sounds great but is way to pricy. I, and many more, will purchase your apps after lowering your price.

to Tmidiman:

Material in this app is our over twenty years of experience playing guitar. Maybe you will get more success if you will ask to lower 75% of some video guitar school with the same kind of material? ;-)

This app is very pricey. Maybe that's why there are no reviews. Lower the price 75% and then you'll get sales AND attention.
