In Lesson 4, we're going to learn a variation of the 6-note pattern that we've been playing in the previous lessons. Up until now, in our 6-note grouping, we've always pulled-off from nowhere on the 5th note in the grouping. We're going to keep doing that, except now we'll be switching the finger we pull off with every other 6-note grouping. Sounds like a mouthful doesn't it? Don't worry though, once you understand the overall concept it won't be as hard as it sounds.

Let's take a look at the first measure. Look at the two "p" markings for the pull-offs. The first pull-off is on the A string. However, if you look at the second pull-off, it's on the D string. So, every other 6-note grouping, we'll be switching the string where the pull-off is played. This will of course mean that your fingers will be switching as well. For example, my middle finger will play the first pull-off on the A string, but then my index finger will play the second pull-off on the D string.

Practice hard! :) In the next lesson, we'll be applying the Pedal Tone Legato technique to a rock piece.
