  • Hi and welcome to the second instalment of my lessons focusing on hand synchronisation. This one is a bit harder than the previous ones because we're not dealing with ascending or descending in a straightforward linear pattern. This time, there is more string crossing involved.

    I use what I call a 'step up' and a 'step down' type of approach in these licks. Although it may be an ascending line, it does so by going up 2 steps, coming back 1 step, going up 2 steps etc...

    For descending lines, it may descend a few notes, then start back about 2 or more notes to come back down again. Confused?
    Don't worry, you'll understand when you hear it.

    You could almost say it's like taking 2 steps forward 1 step back! However, it lends itself very well to more interesting phrases and runs.

    As always, take your time with this one because there's a lot more to think about. However, good hand synchronisation should be your main goal so even if you don't play it at full speed you can still work on making your playing much tighter.
