Sound Crazy – Cross String Pattern

By Darren DeFranco


Hello GBUers!

This next sequence will give your pentatonics a whole new sound. Basically you’re only playing one note on each string, just skipping between the first and second notes as you play each string. The effect is a bizarre sound that sounds really cool.

But remember, as always, take it slow!


Use a metronome and practice this pattern at a slow speed at first, maybe play quarter notes at 70bpm. As a goal, try to get it up to 80bpm before moving on!
