Building Speed and Stamina - Exercise 1 Backing Building Speed and Stamina - Exercise 2 Backing

In our 2nd exercise, we're going to be switching back and forth from thirty-second notes to sixteenth notes. Also, be aware of the 6/8 time signature.

This one is a little more difficult than the last exercise because we have to move our fret-hand fingers a lot faster. Just relax as much as possible while you learn it at a slow speed. Then gradually build up speed only when you're ready.

And just so you know, in the backing track there is a 2nd guitar playing along with me. For the first eight measures, the 2nd guitar is playing the melody an octave lower. Then in the last eight measures, it's playing harmonies.

Once you have it down, head on over to the next page for the backing track!
