Excellent introduction. Adds a lot of character to playing for sure
Thanks, Paul, yeah they are a really useful tool everyone should incorporate into their playing.
Seems like the positioning of the “hammer” finger (right behind the fret) is critical since the note doesn’t get its own pluck
Yeah, we should always aim to get close to the frets for all notes. Good point. 🙂
Am truly unlearning lot of bad practices and learning the right fundamentals which are making a huge difference in my playing Thx Dan for making me unlearn a lot of bad skills I learned over so many decades:)
Awesome, Gilson. Pleased you are having so much fun already. The next few months and years, (and beyond) will be lots of good fun for you by the sound of it. Keep it up. 🙂
I don’t know how, but I missed these 3 lessons up until today 🙂
