pat­tern 3 al­ter­nat­ing bass

Guitar Techniques - - LEARN -

The al­ter­nat­ing bass style is great for self-ac­com­pa­ni­ment, as it beefs up the 3 bot­tom end and helps to give the im­pres­sion of more than one gui­tarist play­ing at once. This pat­tern will help get you up to speed with us­ing your thumb as a metronome, but with­out any awk­ward syn­co­pa­tion to trip over. Aim for an even at­tack be­tween the thumb and fin­gers, and take heed of the pick­ing fin­gers.
