Feeble Fast Fake Finger Frippery

This exercise is intended to help develop a sustained fast right-hand finger picking technique, and to a lesser extent left-hand coordination.

The general idea is to use a strictly alternate right-hand fingering throughout :-

T 1 T 2 T 1 T 2 T 1 | ...

In practice, since this particular sequence is in 10/16 (an odd number of thumb-finger pairs) , I tend to repeat the above rather than switch to T 2 T 1 ....

You can practice this one really slowly, it can be quite fun ...
