  • In this exercise aim to accent the notes marked with an asterisk. Take care not to be forceful – accenting does not need to be aggressive. You may find it easier to play everything else quieter and play the accented notes at a normal volume.
  • Keep control – if you’re loosing it, slow down (I mean it: do it as slow as you can!). Make sure you’re producing a full and relaxed tone on all the notes, feeling and plucking both strings in each course.
  • Regularly check your body for unnecessary tensions.
  • At the point your right hand begins to feel tired (or weird), stop.

If you enjoy this free exercise why not support me by buying a CD.
