GUITAR TECHNIQUES: PICKING
DOWN AND UP-PICKING
The symbols under the tab tell you the first note is to be down-picked and the second note is to be up-picked.
Each of the four notes are to be alternate-picked (down and up-picked) very rapidly and continuously.
Palm-mute by resting the edge of your picking hand palm on the strings near the bridge saddles.
Drag the pick across the strings shown with a single sweep. This is often used to augment a rake’s last note.
Play the notes of the chord by strumming across the relevant strings in the direction of the arrow head.
