  • Hey GMCers, this is my new lesson and talking about staccato exercise.

    One of the most demanding practices for the left and right hand coordination is - staccato!

    A staccato is a short, fast note. One simple explanation is - think of touching something really hot. You would take your hand right off it immediately and that's how long a staccato note should be. :)

    A few important things before you start practice are:

    Alternate picking technique / up&down alternate strokes

    This technique is very important!

    Considerable concentration and strenght are needed for long phrases and accurate picking..

    Palm muting / to avoid any unvanted tones

    Metronom / play in measure to build strong accurate picking hand.

    Work on your right hand, since every note is picked. Begin at a slow tempo, then progressively speed it up.

    Ok, here we have simple backing track starting in Em.
    4/4, tempo 130 bpm.

    Enjoy !
