LESSON #40 - Combining Inversions / Techniques

Lesson Series by Todd Simpson

In today's lesson we are going to combine several things we have been working on. Also, we are going to get your fingers/forearms up to snuff by working on endurance, accuracy and speed.

First up. Let's warm up. Do some wrist rolls and gentle stretches and once your arms are ready, lets start with a drill that will help your finger reach and your left hand speed. Only pick this drill once per string. Lets see how fast we can work this up.


Next up, Lets extend the pattern we did in one of our recent lessons all the way from the high to low string and then run it in reverse. Use the same "strike once hammer many" approach that we used in warmup. Strike the open string and hammer on the other notes.
