01 – Foundational Patterns

Quick Reminder

Play along with each practice exercise below. Each one is approximately 1 minute long. You'll notice that we're using only 1 chord on each of the first 6 exercises. Make sure to focus on creating a crisp, clean, and even sound throughout using Foundational Patterns 1 and 2.

After each one, try to make some mental notes about your sound. What is coming naturally? And what is not sounding the way you want? Experiment making small changes to get the sound you want from your guitar.
