LESSON #87 - Neo classical
Lesson Series by Todd Simpson
In this lesson, I'm going to pack TONS of stuff in. Hopefully not too much! we are going to do some Quasi Neo Classical stuff to help us with Alternate Picking / Economic Picking and Pinky Work!
Let's warm up and get going!
FINGER YOGA! - Let’s do our usual Finger Yoga stretches. Here is a link to the video for references.
Let's start with a shape that will serve as warmup and workout part A. We are going to work on our AP/ECO and our precision. This shape is a bit of a finger twister so don't worry about playing it fast. It's actually built just so you can't play it overly fast, especially at first. But that's fine, this is more about precision.
Now let's add something to this. It's going to take on a bit of a Neo-Classical Vibe. Which is always good Let's loop this too and then move it up the neck.
Now for the BIG challenge of this series. We are going to use our Pinky to change the alternating tone. This will be a challenge indeed.
