As mentioned earlier, you can use hybrid picking to play the bass notes with the pick and then pluck the upper strings with middle and ring fingers. Without using a pick, you can dedicate your thumb to the bass notes and use your index and middle fingers to pluck the upper strings. In earlier lessons we've approached this orchestration by playing the bass notes and melody notes at the same time. This time we are going to rhythmically separate them.
We do this by playing the bass note first slightly ahead of the beat. Precisely one swung eighth-note triplet before the down beat. Then, play the upper note chord tones on the following down beat. Do this on every beat and then we wind up with a neat variation on our new blues orchestration idea!
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
