Study-Practice Notes

  • Technique: Play each twang note and its resolution as an integrate musical and physical idea, not two separate notes.
  • Extensions: As always, using your knowledge of chord theory, play this pattern in all keys you want to master (Suggested keys, those preferred by guitar players, are C, G, D, A, E).

Please take a moment to “like” this lesson. LIKES really matter in helping get the word out in supporting FREE education! Thank you.
