LESSON #12 - Sliding

Lesson Series by Todd Simpson

We are going to add the "slide" in to our work here. This lesson will focus on playing scales but doing so on one string at a time and sliding between positions. This will give you a chance to work on your alternate picking in the context of an actual scale and introduce you to sliding up and down the neck teach a given note. We are going to start working in the Minor Scale.
Check out the tablature. Keep in mind this same pattern will work on every string.
