EVERYBODY LOVES A GOOD TRAVERSE PICKING JAM!!!!!


Let's work on our traverse picking (e.g. picking while crossing strings). This is a real stumbling block for many players and will show you where the gaps are in your playing and muting. Let's try a variety of shapes and sizes starting with something familiar.

WALKING THE PATH


As Morpheus says, "There is a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path.". Let's start walking!!

First up, we have been working on ECONOMIC PICKING for several sessions now and I"ll throw a few more in today. Try to add bits in to your practice to address any areas that need work. This is often hard to do since we tend to play the stuff that have a better hand on rather than the stuff that's frustrating us.

PRECISION AT WORK AND PLAY

We've been working hard lately on learning crazy bits. Let's back off the crazy just a pinch and put these licks to good use with a backing. If these licks are new to you, they should be easy to pick up smile.gif If they are familiar, focus on playing with precision and watch the crazy speed happen on it's own. Learn to focus on precision, and after a while, you don't notice that your playing at higher speeds, it will just happen.

RYTHM BIT!

Here is our backing rythm for today. Using a Chromatic Progression. Easy to play and hopefully familiar for our "Day of Rest" smile.gif

SYNCH or SWIM!!!

As you may have noticed, I"m a BIG fan of Right/Left hand Synchronization. This is an area that many folks really struggle with. I'm no exception. Getting my hands to "talk" to each other was quite a bit of work. Today, let's dive in to that just a bit smile.gif

FIRST UP!!!

Let's get going with a bit of a rythm/lick bit. It is much more fun than playing a straight hand drill and the syncopated timing makes it sound spiff smile.gif

*Here is a simplified version of a more complex riff. Let's start out more simple and work up to crazy.

ONWARD!!!

Let's leverage the work we've done up to this point. We have learned a variety of Drills and Riffs to help focus our technique. Let's focus a bit on the right hand and make use of some of the bits that you should know pretty well by now. For today's work, try to AVOID LEGATO. Try to pick every single note and keep a good palm mute.

First up!! Let's take a lick that we worked on last session and MOD it to make our hand work a bit more on alternate picking and precision. You already know this pattern so it should be easy going smile.gif

KEEPING IT UP

There have been several posts in the forum recently on endurance and stamina as it relates to guitar playing. This aspect is often overlooked. Many players can play in great bursts of speed and flourish but can't keep it up for very long. These spiff bits of finger torture will give your hand/arm/fingers the will to fight on smile.gif STOP PLAYING IF IT HURTS!!!
