Plectrum Co-ordination

Featured Guitar Lesson

Picking & Co-ordination



Aim: Practise coordinating the Left and Right hands.
Level: Beginners to Intermediate.

This foundation exercise is a great warm up for both hands. Guitar playing on a basic
level is nothing more than good co-ordination of left and right hands. Follow the  plectrum stroke
directions closely; start slow and slow increase the tempo over time. This exercise covers
alternate and sweep picking.The video shows the best way to practise this, no amplification;
concentrate on good clean notes. Practice with a metronome and keep tabs on the progress with a chart; start at a low speed such as 50 BPM and head from there. There are two views available on the video: left and right hands.
