7.4 Alternate Picking (Practice Variation) video

Tunefox Mandolin Lesson #7

This is a practice variation for you to play along with to help you hone your alternate picking technique.

Remember to use the weight of your hand when flatpicking and figure out what works best for your technique-wise. Does if feel better to gently drag your fingers underneath the strings, or do you prefer anchoring a little of your palm on the bridge? Either one is cool, just keep focusing on a relaxed posture and arm.
