I and M Alternation

Quick Review:

  • Move from the big knuckle.
  • The tip joint remains passive (no curling the fingers into a “hook”).
  • Follow through and touch your palm with your finger pad (not tip).
  • When M plays, I comes out.
  • When I plays, M comes out.
  • Thumb sits on the string behind the string being played.
  • Keep space between your wrist and the guitar.

    Thanks Allen,
    It is so good going back over these techniques! How quickly bad habits creep in!
    Best wishes,
