Right Hand Workout


The right hand is the most important component in the development of your guitar playing skills. You can have great left hand technique and know all of your scales and chords, but if your right hand is not accurate, smooth, and relaxed, then your timing suffers, your tone is weak, your note clarity is lacking and there is no sense of fluidity to your music. Your right hand is your metronome and your ability to create great tone and play at high tempos resides mostly in that right hand as well.

This book presents a series of right hand exercises that will help you develop dexterity and accuracy with your right hand. Practicing these exercises, with a metronome, will also greatly improve your timing. Additionally, it provides exercises and tips to help you increase your speed.
