    I take lessons and would like to supplement them with some technique exercises. Specifically, legato playing, alternate picking and some tapping. Thanks.

    Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar CD and book by Troy Stetina, a lot legato really involves developing you left hand strength and finger independence, there are a lot of exercises in the book that do this, its not something that you can read in a day and be done, you need to go through the whole book in several months times and continue to do the exercises to retain the benefits.

    here is troys site, though I found the book at a music store many years ago.

    No problem. It is awesome, and the sound examples are great too.
