    Assign numbers to each note of the scale. For C scale,ascending:

    Play 132435465768
    Then back down: 867564534231

    Glad we’re on the same page Kev 😉 I had to stop the video and write it down more or less like that. And then I was able to figure it out. Still really confusing for my fingers, but that’ll just take practice.


    With the 8th and 16th notes I can do up/down with my thumb, but it’s pretty much just a Mute on the up stroke. Do you suggest growing out your thumbnail (like a classical guitarist) to do this? I don’t recall seeing the up/down picking in any of the song lessons, but it sure helps with dexterity!

    I’m having the same problem. I keep all my nails quite short, so the up stroke it was just sliding up off the nail. I don’t want to grow my nails out, so I’ll just have to work on it another way. Maybe using two fingers?


    Starting on 2013.12.23

    Worm – 2
    Strumming – 17
    Picking – 30 (was using both P and M finger)
    – 33 (using T, P, M on all 4 strings > g, E, C, A; just wanted to do another b/c I practice that one more often)
    C Scale = 8
    Chord Switch = 16

    I found it quite hard to count at the same time with strumming and chord switching. I don’t sing much, so clearly that is something else I need to work on)
