[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!
