LESSON #104 - (Lesson #4 Redux) ADVANCED RIGHT HAND - LEFT HAND SYNCHRONIZATION


Lesson Series by Todd Simpson


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.



Being able so make your right hand pick, exactly when your left hand is fretting a note, while moving at speed, is well....hard! As you guys have been impressing me greatly as learning players, we are going to take this and make it even harder by using our STREEEEEEEETTTTCCHHHH and our various "Multi Pickstroke" techniques.


SKIPPING THE WARMUP PATTERN, DIVING IN TO THE FUN!

Here we go!
