Ex­am­ple1 sixth-string root legato idea

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Chops Shop -

The first four ex­er­cises use A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale (A C D E G) with var­i­ous legato ap­proaches. I’ve in­cluded pick di­rec­tion and fin­ger­ing sug­ges­tions, but you might find an­other way suits you bet­ter. This first ex­er­cise is a lin­ear, sixth-string root scale pat­tern that as­cends us­ing ham­mer- ons, and descends us­ing pull- offs. Note how slides are used on the fifth and third strings to en­able a smooth legato feel between po­si­tions.
