Ex­am­plE1 rag­time pick­ing

Guitar Techniques - - THE BLUES SHUFFLE -

Us­ing lightly palm muted, al­ter­nat­ing ‘straight’ bass un­der a syn­co­pated top line, this ex­am­ple is de­signed to ac­cus­tom the fin­gers and brain to the re­quired skills. no need to play this fast, just go for clar­ity and even­ness. due to the palm mut­ing, you’ll need to keep your pick­ing hand and wrist in a straight line, rather than the more ‘arched’ clas­si­cal tech­nique.
