This is one of the more "acrobatic" techniques on the guitar, and incorporates some of the "octave" techniques of previous lessons.
Contrary motion means just what it says: positions and licks that are made possible by the lowering of one string, while raising the other. Licks are discussed in 2-string spreads, as well as 3 and even 4-string spreads.
We also take a look at the use of a pick, or pick and finger as well as thumb-only picking to help you explore this fun and interesting new technique.
Great for fills, backup work and soloing too.—Arlen Roth
