Key components to building solid technique are discussed as we review our playing posture and check for comfort and ease of motion in our picking hand. This lesson is a way to help prevent any tension causing habits as you develop your right hand.
- As we jump into more intermediate levels of flat picking…and playing bluegrass guitar,…I wanted to review a little bit of what I think, again,…are real fundamental skills and I would suggest…anybody of advanced levels or intermediate level…to look at some of the basic stuff we covered,…concerning the picking hand and fretting and posture.…But I just wanna review here, as we, ah,…move forward, just some key concepts that I think are…of utmost importance of building strong technique.…And the first thing we'll talk about is good technique…starts with good posture.…
We covered a lot of that.…And some of the key points to review there are,…try to always maintain a sense of where your shoulders are.…We wanna try to build a solid starting point.…A starting block, if you will, for playing.…A lot of times, bad habits creep in because we don't have…that solid foundation from which to start playing.…It's, you know, either over a few minutes or a few years,…tension and bad habits and bad technique forms can kind…of develop and it leads to all kinds of problems.…
