Right Hand Warm Up #1

Right Hand Warm Up #1

This is a basic right hand warm-up that incorporates the Home Position in a rhythmic context. Each line has four measures. In the first line, play 3rd string with your index-finger followed by a pinch on the 1st & 5th strings with the middle finger and thumb. In the third and fourth measures, play a 3-1-5 pattern 4X ending a 3rd string and a 1&5 pinch. The second line is identical except the second string is played instead of the third string. The third line (last 4 measures) use the index finger to alternate the third and the second strings with the same pattern. Learn this exercise and be able to play it without looking at your right hand.

 

After playing this exercise, make sure you can play it without looking at your right hand and proceed to Right Hand Warm Up #2
