Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

For this open­ing Ly­dian riff, keep your pick­ing hand mov­ing con­sis­tently down and up through­out, to en­sure even tim­ing and to help you lock in with the drums. This is im­por­tant when play­ing through the syn­co­pated bars such as 2 and 3, where some of the notes land on the up­beats. Keep your pick­ing hand locked into the frame­work by us­ing up­strokes for the up beats and down­strokes for the down­beats. Hold your pick at a slight an­gle so that the edges cut into the string, rather than the flat sur­face; this will feel smoother when chang­ing from string to string and im­prove the at­tack of your tone.
