Funk in the Trunk - Exercise 2 Funk in the Trunk - Exercise 4

Here, we have a little bit of fingerpicking while we go back and forth between some Major chords.

First, we're trading off with A Major and Ab Major. Then next, we trade off between C Major and B Major.

While you play this passage, have the pick play the notes on the Low E string. Then for the D string and G string notes, pluck those with you middle and ring fingers on your picking hand. So you'll basically be going back and forth from using your pick to using your fingers.

And just a little reminder, look out for those short 16th notes. Make sure you play them properly with staccato.
