-Use Two Down Strokes for the first two notes.
-Hammer on and pull off with the pinky for the next two.

-Let's march this up the neck.


IT'S COMPLICATED

Last lesson we worked on TRIADS and TRIPEGGIOS a bit. This time, we are going to play some patterns that are a bit more complex. Let's dig in.

-Notice there are TWO SETS OF ECONOMIC PICKING STROKES
-Two down strokes, then later, two up strokes. (Try to keep this strict, it will help you loop this pattern)

-Let's march this up the neck.


IT'S MORE COMPLICATED

Let's turn up the wick. Try to use two down strokes to start, but after that follow your own instincts and see if the outcome feels comfortable. Hopefully by now, your developing a "Sense of Picking".
