Part five of Technical Development Primer alternate picking. Left and right hand coordination is our goal
I’m going to introduce to you now to sequencing. We’ll cover this in a lot more depth at some point in the future. But sequencing is almost a mathematical approach to playing within patterns that you already know. It's good for building technique and it's good for creative ideas. I personally wouldn’t overuse sequencing but everybody is different and we all find our own sort of way with a guitar. It's a great technique to practice not to be overused in my opinion.
Let me tell you radically what I think sequencing is within any area f the seven shapes that we’ve learned. We can find three notes on a string. Now, if that’s the case then one of those notes must be the lowest notes in pitch. One must be the middle note in pitch and the next note is the highest note in pitch. So in position one, obviously the 5th fret is the lowest pitch low, medium for 7th fret, 8th is the highest pitch within that particular shape.
Now, sequencing an out values truth for any position you can find. You can find a low, medium and high notes on either strings. Now let me just give you a quick sort of example of what sequencing could do. If I was to say that I was going to play the low medium, low medium, low high, low high that would give us eight notes per string and it would give us this sound that will play.
In position one; I’ll play 5, 7, 5, 7 and then I’ll play 5, 8, 5, 8. Now it doesn’t sound like much into a sequence. Play that particular order through all seven available shapes. Let me show you what it sounds like.
So it adds quite a musical element to our basic shapes that we’ve got. For the point being is that you should think about your own sequences. You might say I’m going to play on the top string low, high, low and then change to the B string and play medium. It sounds like this in position one.
And that gives you an arpeggio. So, just by thinking about sequencing for moments; you’ve ended up with an arpeggio add to the scale. Let me show you how it would sound like real quick.
So I repeated that sequence throughout my seven shapes and it gave us a new angle on what we can play. I think that was the beauty of sequencing is.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this short insight into alternate picking and an introduction to sequencing, we should cover that more in the future.
