CHANGING BETWEEN THE TWO FINGER GROUPS.
As you’ve seen there’s a lot you can do staying
within the same finger group.
There is even more you can do moving between
the two shapes.
The basic move is to “twist” or “switch” your
fingers as you go between the two different
finger groups.
Firstly is changing between the two finger groups
on the same strings.
When practicing remember the ideas of –
(a)
1 strum each.
STOP! Check and
Think
. Give yourself time to learn
the finger moves.
(b)
4 strums each with no stop. Here you
want to keep perfect rhythm like a
song.
Switch or swap from straight to diagonal and back on strings 1 and 2.
Straight Diagonal Straight Diagonal
