The Key to Learning this type of Awkward Interval Line: Part 1
Break up the line bar by bar [or in half bars] and count time 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and as you play.
Counting basic time will reveal where the “On” beat is and where the “Off” beat is.
It will also tell you where the “Down stroke” and “Up stroke” is whilst you are alternate picking.
Counting time also helps us visualise and feel the string skipping intervals in our wrists and fingers.
This bar is a good example because it is quite awkward and very un-guitaristic. So, again count time as you play through it.
OKAY: NOW FROM THE TOP:
The first bar is quite straight forward, but you will need to change fingers on the 4th beat from the 4th to the 3rd finger.
Next we have the fist string skipping bar.
Bar 3 we have more string skipping and awkward fingering and intervals.
The next two bars are straightforward with no string skipping.
