Bach Up To Speed

This lesson presents a familiar (to my readers) open string arpeggio picking sequence with simple left-hand fingering to allow practice and development of right-hand speed.

I actually play these pieces using the following picking :-

T 1 T 1 2 1 T 1 | T [ T=Thumb 1=1st Finger 2=2nd Finger ]

You could also use it to practice true Classical style fingering (at a slower tempo) :-

T 2 1 2 3 2 1 2 | T

Dare I mention my usual advice of practicing slowly to allow a progressive build up of speed?

Many appologies to J.S.Bach for associating his name with a piece such as this.
