    Live Stream: Thursday, May 14th at 7:30pm EST (check your local time zone)

    _______________

    Hey guys, we are back with Live Lesson EP018! This month’s topic is: How to Tremolo Pick.

    Tremolo picking is a technique used by many virtuosic players, such as Taimane. In a nutshell, it allows you to play notes on one string at super sonic speeds!

    In this session, you’ll learn how to perform the technique by using the nail of your thumb.

    This month’s topic should stir up some great questions! So please post all you have below and I hope you guys join us for the live stream. 🙂

    In my profession – Physical Therapy and Massage therapy- I cannot grow my nails long. I have grown “tiny” nails on right hand, the longest I can have without getting in the way of my work. I have occasionally tried a thumb pick but it is too “aggressive” for my taste. Any other tips for people like me?
    I am still a beginner (intermediate)
    Thanks,
