cd track 62

Guitar Techniques - - LEARN­ING ZONE -

Ex­am­ple 1b as­cends and de­scends our po­si­tion 1 C Ly­dian mode in 6ths. Keep the hand po­si­tion square and dropped with the thumb in the mid­dle of the back of the neck and con­cen­trate on clean note sep­a­ra­tion by re­leas­ing each digit at the same time as the next note is played. Care­ful po­si­tion­ing of the first fin­ger, with its tip set to mute off the lower ad­ja­cent string as well as all higher strings un­der­neath will also help elim­i­nate any dis­so­nance. Once mem­o­rised, try play­ing through the first ex­am­ple again, this time re­plac­ing the 6ths with 5ths.
