    Hi @garyrc4aol-com and welcome to TAC. I would recommend having a look at completing the Flatpicking Jumpstart and the Cross Picking 5 Day Challenge.

    The other thing I have learned is to slow down when learning something that is new. A metronome is a must here. Set the metronome to a BPM wherein you are able to hit the two strings perfectly without any adjacent strings. Practice at that speed to build the muscle memory of your picking hand. Once you have accomplished that Increase the speed incrementally and see if you are able to again do it perfectly. If not, dial the metronome back again. Repeat this process until you are able to execute the goal (in your case hitting two strings without the adjacent strings) at the desired speed. It may seem like an excruciatingly slow process however it is tried and true! Good luck and keep on going playing!
