3 adding pedal tones

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: CHOPS SHOP -

Again us­ing the same scale as a ba­sis, this ex­er­cise uses triplets, but in­cor­po­rates an open first string pedal tone on the third note of each triplet. This is quite tricky tech­ni­cally, as I’ve sug­gested the use of al­ter­nat­ing third and sec­ond fin­gers of the pick­ing hand. You can ex­per­i­ment here, as you may find it eas­ier to only use your sec­ond finge r (m) to play the pedal tone, although this way it might be harder to achieve the faster tem­pos.
