classical guitar slur exercise

1234-4321-1434-2434

Want to beef up your speed, strength and agility?  Do this!

This slur exercise for classical guitarists builds strength and dexterity by combining “hammer-ons” and “pull-offs” in a pattern that utilizes the entire left hand.

The pattern is:
1234-4321-1434-2434
The right hand plays only on the first note of each of the four groups. The other notes are slurred by the left hand alone.

You may stay in one position on one string and repeat this exercise, or move from one string to the next, move on one string up the neck a fret at a time, or create a different pattern to keep things interesting and measure repetitions.
