3/4 time alt bass picking patterns...

I'd like some suggestions for patterns you use.

Leonard Cohen's, Bird on the Wire. It was in Septembers issue. It is a fantasic 3/4 time picking pattern: P, I, M, I, A, I (double check this to the article in the Sept issue)

To get a feel for it, play it with this chord progression A, D, A, Asus2, A, Asus4, E. Repeat to get a real flow going.

I have since called it the Leonard Cohen (or Cohen) Pick. I normally use spanish folk picking patterns in all kinds of music.

Have Fun with it, J
