P.S. Using a NEW PICK today. Vinnie made me some Custom "Black" Switchblade Buffed/Sharpened Picks. I love these. These would make a GREAT training pick even if you just used them during our lessons and when working on AP training.


(These are CUSTOM made at this point and not on the menu at the web site. I'm hoping he makes them a permanent product as he did with the original switchblade buffed that he'd customized)

PEDAL TONE AND LINEAR SCALES

We have worked on "Pedal Tones" in the past so this should be familiar. "Pedal Point/Tone" is a Baroque Classical technique of returning to a single note while playing a scale. Seen often in Beethoven's Fuge pieces for example.

Let's look at our first shape. Single string, STRICT Alternate Picking!

Let's try this on other strings as well.
