[MUSIC]
So,
here's an exercise for your right hand.
I'm gonna use one finger for this.
And I'm gonna do the arpeggio [SOUND]
minor seven arpeggio.
[SOUND].
And I want you to, sweep across the
string.
And, when you send me the videos, of
yourself playing, see if you can send
it to me at an angle, so that, I can see,
what your right hand is doing.
Something like this.
[MUSIC]
So that's the slow version.
[MUSIC]
And
if you are, ambitious you can, you can do
it chromatically down the neck.
[MUSIC]
But
what I'd, what I'd like to see you do, is
just sweeping across the string.
[MUSIC]
This is the one-finger technique,
sweeping across the strings.
And you will use the metronome, and do one
note per beat.
Here we go.
[SOUND].
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
Now, here is two notes per beat, coming
up.
[MUSIC]
So, see how even you can get it,
using just the one finger, the index
finger.
