Advanced Classical Exercise: Intro

Previous Lesson
Next Lesson

In this tutorial you will learn to play an advanced classical exercise using typical right hand classical fingerpicking patterns and harmonizing major and minor scales in across the fretboard.

First we will learn a specific fingerpicking pattern to use. Then we will play notes from the E major scale on the D string while harmonizing them on the high E string. Also, we will play the open B string as a pedal note in between each pair of harmony notes. We'll also apply the exercise to the E minor scale. Then, we'll adapt the entire exercise to a different set of stings to play in C major and C minor.
