  • Hi all!

    Welcome to the new part of my etude series of lessons. This lesson is designed for beginners.
    It will teach some of the guitar techniques like legato, sweep picking, hybrid picking, alternate picking.
    Intentionally, I made a specific backing track without percussion instruments - it will help you to focus on timing, dynamics and sound and also add some classical, baroque vibe to this little tune. I love baroque compositions and I think that this kind of music brings some lightness and delicacy to our playing and provides a lot of inspiration.

    * legato
    * alternate picking
    * sweep picking
    * hybrid picking
