Beginner Exercise 15

The same concept as 13 and 14 but with a classical approach.

Picking E

Classical Using C


Picking F

Blocked Flutter Using G (Barred)

This one is a little different, but not by much. Here you have the standard PIMA, which starts from the lowest string, going up. (In other words, the Low E string is the P, then the I, then the M, then the A.)

The “P” will always be the lowest note, and the “A” will always be the highest note for this example. This exercise is for both picking and fretting hand and is reminiscent of the ‘boom-chuck’ found in fingerstyle guitar.
