WORKING HIGHER

Let's move up on the fret board a bit. Let's work near and beyond the 12th fret. We spend a lot of time on the lower frets and it's time we balanced that out. It's OK to allow your hand position to shift to "Rock Position" with the left thumb rising above the middle position on the neck. Also, feel free to use your pinky or not. Whatever feels better for your hand. Try to do these with and without the pinky so you get good at both.

FOR ALL THESE, LET'S
-Strike once, Hammer Many
-Single/Double/Quad Pick
-Palm Mute
