Weekly Workout: Picking Hand Power
Work through these exercises to feel more comfortable and confident playing with the fingers of your picking hand, especially if you are primarily accustomed to using a flatpick. The workout as a whole is comprehensive. Initially, you will build technical confidence by working on plucking to get a good, even tone and then build independence of the picking-hand fingers. Finally, you’ll play through scales and single-note lines and build more sophisticated contrapuntal textures.
