Part Two: Four Tone Chords – Hybrid Study Riffs

LESSON 007 – PART TWO

EXERCISE #2).
Four Tone Chords – Hybrid Study Riffs:

Exercise two studies the techniques and method for Hybrid plucking four-tone chords. The examples that are shown are in the key of “A Minor.” Both exercises operate within a triple-meter time signature of 6/8.

In exercise 2a, a four-tone chord riff is applied within a series of chords that sit predominantly between the 5th to 2nd strings.

The riff in example 2b, once again operates within a 4-tone structure. This time the riff is exclusive to strings 4th to 1st and the riff applies a pedal off of the open 4th string “D.”

Exercise #2a). [00:05]

  • Study the four note chord fingerings
  • Practice Hybrid plucking the four tones
  • Develop the riff up to the goal tempo of 50 b.p.m.

Exercise #2b). [05:03]

  • Study the four note chord fingerings
  • Practice Hybrid plucking the four tones
  • Develop the riff up to the goal tempo of 42 b.p.m.
