About this lesson plan
If your student has trouble coordinating their picking and fretting hands, this lesson will help you solve the problem. Each exercise works their coordination in different ways. By the end the student will be able to seamlessly play through the exercises without 'tripping up' on the string or playing muted notes. In addition to developing the student's coordination, the exercises also help the student think about creating their own licks. Having exercises that can be used in a musical way is key to developing as a musician.
This lesson plan will help your student:
- Develop their coordination
- Practice playing along with a metronome
- Think about extending licks up and down a scale
- Think about taking an idea and using it to create their own licks
