Guitar at Work - Week 2 - Picking Hand Arpeggio Exercise

Having trouble learning to play arpeggios with your picking hand? This week I'm going to show you an exercise I came up with when I first started playing fingerstyle. At the time, I found it hard to play arpeggios in a p-i-m-a pattern. My fingers just weren't coordinated enough so they all just wanted to pluck all of the strings at the same time. That's why I came up with this exercise to help train my fingers to do what I wanted them to do. This is something you can do on just about any hard surface so you don't need a guitar around to do it. Read more at the link below.
