Descending with Space
For the 3rd beat in the first 4 measures, create silence for the rest. We can do this by moving a fretted tone to a touch [mute], or stop the tone with our motor hand. Or, both.
F type chords include Fm, Fm7, F7, FMaj7, F6.
To start our fingerpicking training, I'd like to share essential training arps and other exercises to strengthen and command the motor hand. We can use any chord [preferably a six-string chord] or even just open strings for these exercises. Or, we can use the E Major chord scale (or something similar).
In college [for classical guitar], the E Major chord scale was one of my main fretting palettes for fingerpicking training. I probably plant/muted and arpeggiated the chord scale more than playing any other piece of music, or even melodic scales. And, strangely enough, I received more compliments while practicing it than even playing my own fingerstyle music or classical pieces, at the time.Let's begin with the same pattern across different string sets.
