[MUSIC]
We're
becoming string skipping experts at this
point, but there's still more to do.
We're gonna do three, two.
We just finished up doing three, one.
Three, two is three notes on a string.
[MUSIC]
And two notes on a string.
[MUSIC]
And of course,
we're gonna start at the top, go all the
way to the bottom, and go back up.
So.
[MUSIC]
All right.
So, this one is an E major.
[MUSIC]
And I'm adding the ninth.
[MUSIC]
The.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight, nine.
[MUSIC]
That's the note I'm adding so.
[MUSIC]
All right, that's a nice sound.
So, let's see how this works, how it
sounds.
[MUSIC]
This is gonna sound like 16th notes.
You hear that one, two, three, four, one,
two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
Let's hear how that sounds again.
Get the sound in our head first.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
That's a nice sound, I like that.
All right, so, let's see what the strokes
are.
[MUSIC]
And
once again, this is gonna start with the
upstroke.
Our shuffled practice is paying off, doing
the up stroke on the down beat.
[MUSIC]
So, we're doing up and two pull-offs.
[MUSIC]
Again, this is pretty familiar stuff.
It's, there's so much based on what we did
before, so
I think you're gonna pick this up pretty
quick.
Alright, then a downstroke.
[MUSIC]
A pull-off.
[MUSIC]
Let's just try that much,
because that's, that's the new note right
there.
Let's get used to that new note.
So, we're gonna go one, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
So, that's all driven by the left hand.
We're just doing one upstroke and one
downstroke.
So one, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
All right, let's see what happens next.
[MUSIC]
I'll see.
[MUSIC]
Okay,
I'm actually gonna pick the first two
notes.
[MUSIC]
And then I'm gonna do a hammer-on.
So let's do this.
[MUSIC]
And I'll pick those first two.
I'm gonna practice that.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
That's up, down, up, up, down, up.
[MUSIC]
All right, now we'll add the hammer.
[MUSIC]
Do that slower.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
There you got it.
[MUSIC]
Yeah.
[MUSIC]
Speed it up a little bit.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
All right, after that,
all we have to do is an upstroke,
[MUSIC]
there.
And really, that's the end.
So we go.
[MUSIC]
And that's the end of the lick.
[MUSIC]
Three, four.
[MUSIC]
Three, four.
[MUSIC]
All right,
let's make that even slower cuz we wanna
get that jump.
[MUSIC]
From there, nice and clean.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
There we go, four.
[MUSIC]
Think you've got it.
[MUSIC]
Nice notes.
[MUSIC]
All right, now let's try one more note.
I just keeping adding one at a time, cuz
each one you have to get used to,
if it's an upstroke, if it's a downstroke,
or if it's a hammer-on or a pull-off,
you have sort of four choices there and
you know, that's, that's a lot of choices.
So.
We gotta make sure we get the right one.
So, we're gonna go all the way back.
[MUSIC]
Like that, or on scale, let's see.
[MUSIC]
Well there's two more notes.
[MUSIC]
So, let's see what we do here.
[MUSIC]
Well, they're all picked, so we'll go up,
down, up.
[MUSIC]
All right, so one, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
Yeah.
[MUSIC]
There we go.
This is a nice sound.
Let's do a couple of these faster with
stops.
One, two, three four.
[MUSIC]
Yeah.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
That sounds great.
Now let's loop it, and this time I'm gonna
get quiet then loud.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
All right, I would love to hear you play
that.
So, again, practice it a lot, make sure it
sounds good to you, and even if you're
having problems, if it doesn't sound good
to you, you can send it to me anyway.
I'll take a look at it and I bet I can
help you with some advice and
ideas on how to make this sound great.
You can look at what other students have
been doing.
And can't wait to see your video.
So send it on in and I'll check it out.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
One, two, three, four!
