This is the same exercise, and we're still alternating the bass notes.

Play the open 4th string using the pick, and play the double stop with your fingers. You want your picking hand where you can pull up on the 2nd, and 3rd strings with the middle and ring finger. Then play the open 5th string with the pick, and pull up on the 2nd, and 3rd string with your fingers.

We are also muting the bass notes with the palm, like in the last lesson.

This is also a root/5 exercise, the root is the 4th (D) string. The 3rd (G) string in the 2nd fret is an A note, which is the 5th note. The 2nd (B) string in the 3rd fret, is another D note, and the open 5th string is another A note.
