CD TRACK 3
[ Bars 1- 8] Although re- picking with the same pick motion can seem a bit counterintuitive at first, try aiming for a down, up, down action to get the most from these groupings of three ( alternate picking will throw you in odd directions). The speed of string skipping back to the open second string can be tricky, so take your time learning at a slower tempo ( 80bpm is a good starting point). Pay close attention to the palm- mutes, as these will help avoid any nasty note- bleed between strings. Don’t press down too hard near the bridge, however, or you’ll push the strings sharp.
