In this week's Lesson, Aldrine discusses the pros and cons of strumming with just the pointer finger vs strumming with all four fingers. He demonstrates how to wind excess string on the headstock, which leads to a few stories of Macgyver minded musicians. Aldrine also reviews how to play hammer-ons and pull-offs, he explains when each technique can be used, and shares how to practice them.
