  • The Blues is strong with this one. The pickup measure may seem tough, but it lies very comfortable under your fretting hand. The real challenge is picking clean, clear notes. The best way to play clean is to play slowly and smoothly. This helps you build up muscle memory and strength. Gradually increase your speed.
