Advanced Right- Hand Techniques
Now that you have some playing experience under your belt, we can move ahead
to some more interesting playing styles. This chapter covers the basics of playing
individual notes, rather than just strumming chords. To learn to play melodies,
we have to learn more sophisticated right-hand playing techniques.
This chapter introduces two of the more common styles of playing individual notes:
the rest stroke and the free stroke. By learning these techniques, you will be able
to play notes cleanly and easily, with a full sound. These techniques will lay the
basis for all of your future playing, so we will break down their components so
you can quickly understand and master them.
