The Basic Pattern

In this lesson we'll break down the most basic version of the pattern. First grab your open E chord. Now get your thumb going. “1 2 3 4”. Don't worry about the 1/5 for now. we'll look at that later.

Now let's practice the pattern so far, extra slowly with the metronome. Remember that the tempo I've picked may be too fast or to slow for you, so in that case you can just do the exercise on your own. Here it goes!
