Syn’s Tips

So I’m going to be a dear and list them for you, they are as follows-

1234, 1243, 1423, 1432, 1342, 1324,
2134, 2143, 2413, 2431, 2341, 2314,
3124, 3142, 3412, 3421, 3241, 3214,
4123, 4132, 4312, 4321, 4231, 4213


These sequences or Permutations help to develop independence of the fingers because it’s VERY easy to get stuck playing in the same pattern. This is truly something I still work on All The Time!

Play these to the metronome track located in the “content” menu of the lesson player. Start slowly!

Devon Beam when i was first taking lessons my teacher had me do something similar 1324 then 4231. He the had me do the same but instead of hitting the 4 he had hit the 5 so i had to move my hand and it helped out with quickly stretching my hand to hit notes. helped a lot.
