String Skipping Etude - Exercise 1 String Skipping Etude - Exercise 3

In this section, we're going to start using a lot of octave passages. Even though this part is a little less difficult than the other parts, be sure to keep your picking clean and controlled.

On a side note, you may want to experiment with bars 7 and 8 and come up with your own stretching exercises. See in the video how I use all four fingers during each measure? Those octave patterns can lead to some excellent stretching exercises, so try to come up with your own.

Got it all down? On to Exercise 3!
