Slow Little Finger Pull-Off Sequence
This lesson presents another slower pull-off example, this time almost exclusively using the little finger of the left hand.
Let all strings ring throughout as shown.
I have been asked what picking style is used to play the piece;
I play this piece finger-style using 3-fingers
plus thumb (classical technique). The picking
order I use is :-
[ T=Thumb 1,2,3 = 1st,2nd,3rd Finger P=Pull]
T 2 1-P 2 1-P 3 2 1-P 3 2 1-P 2 | T ....
Although I've never tried before (thanks for
the encouragement), one possible two finger
equivalent would be :-
T 1 T-P 2 1-P 2 1 T-P 2 1 T-P 1 | T ...
And flat picking [ D=Down, U = Up, P = Pull]
D U D-P U D-P U U D-P U U D-P U | D
And as always, practice slowly until your
fingers have learned their stuff, then
increase to speed.
