[Bar 17] This crosspick­ing se­quence is an­other de­vice you’ll find in Pec­knold’s play­ing. It’s a clas­sic Amer­i­can sound­ing de­vice re­ally which has its ori­gins in blue­grass mu­sic. This isn’t too much of a chal­lenge but again it’s a tim­ing is­sue be­tween the pick, the ham­mer-on and the fol­low­ing open strings. [Bar 21] The crosspick­ing se­quence sim­ply moves to start on the sixth string; mov­ing parts up or down a string set can of­ten yield great new ideas. [Bar 25] This fi­nal se­quence re­ally demon­strates how mov­ing tri­ads up and down the fret­board can be used to cre­ate lovely sound­ing chord se­quences that sound richer than their open po­si­tion coun­ter­parts. Get­ting into tri­ads is one of the best things you can work on!
