Thumb Independence

In this lesson I'm gonna show you the basic thumb technique that you're gonna need for this style of playing.
I'll show you the palm muting and the basic picking patterns for different chords with the root on the E-, A- and D-string. Make sure you take the time to get extremely comfortable with this before moving on to the next lessons! because if this is something you have to actively concentrate on, everything else that we'll be doing today will seem nearly impossible... So spend some quality time with your thumb before moving on! It's worth it!
