Lesson One - Getting Started

Be sure to read this lesson.  Your first week of practice is critical.  Be sure to make an effort to find a comfortable sitting position, to play on the very tips of your fingers, and to hold the pick properly.

Read through this lesson, try all the exercises, and go over the Right Hand and Left Hand Check List.


  1. In string number exercise 1, when you say even down strokes, does that mean:
    for 6,4,2 strings we go down stroke and 5,3,1 we go up stroke? Or I am just reading too much into it and it means evenly stroked?

    1. Use only down strokes and try playing this exercise without looking at your strings.
