Speed Tech 18

Animated Speed Tech 18 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills section on developing Speed Techniques. As usual, check out the normal speed audio first.

This is an extension of the previous exercise. We use the same finger patterns across the strings, however, this time we cycle back and forth between strings. Also notice that until the last cycle every string is struck with a downstroke. You can use alternate down / upstrokes if you prefer for the whole thing. But the advantage of legato techniques are that the pressure is taken off the picking hand somewhat. This affords you time to just use downstrokes!
