Bryan shows you a challenging exercise that combines strumming with single note playing. This will strengthen your internal rhythm and help you stay consistent with your flatpicking. It will also open the door to improvisation.
Hammer-ons and Pull-offs are a great way to add embellishment to your playing. Bryan shows you an exercise in the Key of G to help you build your strengh and speed so you can play them with ease.
