Tip Of The Day

Right hand drill--  Recall a past entry regarding: octave- 5- root- 5- octave (G string, D string, A string, D string, G string)… Simply start anywhere on the neck, for example the 12th fret, and play G, down to D, down to G, up to D, up to G. The drill is to simply triple stroke the first pass, and double stroke the second pass; then move chromatically down ½ step and continue. Be sure to alternate between fingers 1 and 2 in the right hand, and DO NOT drop a string during the descending portions of the drill. Push the tempo using a metronome. It should prove to be a challenge. Just as in the past entry, try changing up your pitch selection in the left hand.
