EXAMPLE8/FIGURE8 ClaS­Si­Cal piv­ot­ing

Guitar Techniques - - TECHNIQUE -

Piv­ot­ing is the term given to a re­peated pat­tern in­cor­po­rat­ing an as­cend­ing or de­scend­ing line. Use al­ter­nat­ing down/up­strokes and choose your fret­ting fin­gers care­fully. A fin­ger per fret doesn’t al­ways work, but makes a good start­ing point, even if this means jump­ing be­tween the first and third strings at the end of each phrase. Skip­ping be­tween non-ad­ja­cent strings is tricky, but, like any­thing, slow rep­e­ti­tion of the most log­i­cal tech­nique yields re­sults.
