Here we see another common element to JP’s solos, alternate picked groupings of 5 or quintuplets. As an initial exercise to become accustomed to the odd note feel, try repeating the first 2 beats. The run develops into some string skipping so break it down into sections and practice separately before linking the elements all together. Relax the arm and feel the picking motion from the wrist.
