In this lesson we'll build use the patterns from the previous lesson to build some exercises to drill over a backing track. Once you've got the fretboard patterns down it's important to focus on right hand technique. You can use alternate picking or legato. We'll use both in the play alongs. We'll use 1/8th note triplet rhythms to make a convenient musical phrase with our 3 note per string patterns on 2 adjacent string. There are three important points to be notice here:

1. Stay relaxed.
2. Use minimal motion with both hands, especially with alternate picking.
3. Right hand palm muting to stop unwanted string noise.

This is tricky stuff. Be patient with yourself.
