Guitar Pick Exercises 3 and 4
In this 3 1/2 minute video, Guitar Teacher Steve Falter shows you how to use two exercises to increase your pick control, accuracy, and speed.
These are two simple pick exercises that Steve uses to teach his students pick control and accuracy when picking individual strings. They will also help you develop as much picking speed as you want. *The first exercise* has you picking various numbers of strings at a time and there is plenty of timeon the video to follow Steve's examples. *The second exercise* teaches you Alternate Picking, using a down stroke on one string, then an up stroke on the next. Once you master these exercises, work on increasing your speed and *stay tuned for Steve's next video lesson with Left Hand exercises*. These will help build left hand finger strength, muscle memory, accuracy and speed. They are also excellent to warm up your left hand before practicing or performing. These are the exercise that will prepare you to play scales, arpeggios and all the other techniques you need to play lead guitar!
