Ex­am­ple5 TIES

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Rockschool -

The first bar uses the pat­tern ‘rest, then three 16th- notes’ for beats 2, 3 and 4. ‘ Play’ the rest with a down­stroke, but with your pick ‘miss­ing’ the string, then play the three notes ‘up down up’. The sec­ond bar is the same rhythm and pick­ing pat­tern, but the ties sus­tain the notes to cre­ate an ‘across the beat’ feel. If you don’t un­der­stand any of the in­struc­tions, go back and all will soon be­come clear.
