Picking 1

Animated Picking 1 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is the first ActionTab from the Core Skills Picking section.

The object of this exercise is to get you started with playing simple downstrokes. We start with the open Low E string so you can concentrate solely on your picking hand action.

Make sure to watch the introduction video in the Core Skills section on Picking to learn more about holding picks and doing downstrokes.

Loop the ActionTab and play along with it. Once you can play regular clean notes move on to Picking 2 where we look at upstrokes.
