Lesson 1, Technical Development Primer concentrated on alternate picking in a central technique for any guitar player. We’re going to learn some patterns that are extremely useful in the key of either E minor or G major for extensions of those scales checked with guitar players’ profile and software. You download all tab as you watch this video. I’m going to suggest to you the correct way to pick these notes and also the correct left hand fingers that you should use. Don’t cheat on this, because sooner or later you’ll have to go back and use the established fingers that are used for this topic technique. So, if your little finger or your third finger doesn’t feel right don’t try and cheat it just needs a little bit of extra training or exercise to get it to point where it’s useful.
If you check out the first two vowels, we’ve got these 5th, 7th and 8th fret on the B and E strings played in order. Repeating the top note, restrict alternate picking up down followed by up at all times. It should look and sounds like this with your 1st, 3rd and little finger.
Coordination is the key. Don’t rush pass this if your getting this. If you’ve tried this and it feels hard and you’re getting this.
That’s something to address. You don’t want it to be practicing something that sounds like that and the way to bring that technique up to scratch is to actually slow down. So no matter how fast you want to play these shapes later on you’ve got to play them slowly in order for your brain to absorb a new technique if it is new. Also, for your left hand to coordinate perfectly with your right, it's really important. Let’s have a look at shape two with your 1st and 2nd and little fingers, you can play 7-8 and 10 on the B and the E string.
