EXAMPLE2/FIGURE2 Strength in rep­e­ti­tion

Guitar Techniques - - TECHNIQUE PROBLEMS -

Pri­mar­ily us­ing com­bi­na­tions of first-sec­ond-fourth, and first-sec­ond-third fin­gers of the fret­ting hand, this piece keeps up a re­lent­less pace, start­ing with a2de­scend­ing pat­tern, then workin2g back up mix­ing as­cend­ing and de­scend­ing scales. On first lis­ten it can sound like quite a bar­rage, but if you note each shift of po­si­tion and run it slowly to a click, you’ll be sur­prised how speed and stamina ac­cu­mu­late. Don’t rush, as this will lead to ten­sion and strain.
