STUDY 4 Dou­ble-Stops/Mix­ing fin­gers with pick

Guitar Techniques - - Complete Rock Workout -

The big­gest chal­lenge here is mak­ing the rapid tran­si­tion be­tween Sec­tion 1, which is played ex­clu­sively with the thumb, first and sec­ond fin­gers and Sec­tion 2, which is all pick. I per­son­ally po­si­tion the pick out of the way by grip­ping be­tween the first and sec­ond fin­gers be­tween the hand and the knuckle and with care­ful prac­tice and a dash of sleight of hand you can do this in a very short space of time. From a har­monic per­spec­tive most of the ma­te­rial here is de­rived from D mi­nor pen­ta­tonic (D F G A C), A nat­u­ral mi­nor (A B C D E F G) and D nat­u­ral mi­nor (D E F G A Bb C).
