After you warm up (see previous blog) do the following:

Starting on the thin E string place first finger first fret pick down –

holding first finger first fret – place 4th finger 4th fret pick up

place 3rd finger 3rd fret pick down (to hear 3rd finger you must lift 4th finger)

place back 4th finger 4th fret pick up

place 2nd finger 2nd fret pick down (remember to lift 4th finger)

place back 4th finger 4th fret pick up

 

Now repeat this same exercise 10 times each string – E, B, G, D, A, low E.

 

Remember once you are comfortable to use the metronome around 70 to 90 BPM.

Lets say you start at 70 BPM do this for 5 minutes, then go to 80 BPM for five minutes,

then 90 BPM work up 220 BPM.

Also do all exercises using only up picking!

This is the weakest picking direction so it needs extra work.

Now repeat these exercises on all position (register) of your instrument.
