Tremolo Picking Technique

For this lesson we will will look at how to play the tremolo technique on your guitar. A tremolo is when you play the string in an up and down motion with the pick. A tremolo can very in speed, but are often played quickly, for this lesson will start slow and play a bit faster by the end. Some tips: thin picks are a lot easier to use for tremolos. If you find your pick is getting stuck, try "choking up" on the pick by gripping it closer to the tip, in essence shortening the length of the pick.

Part 1 (basic_tremolo.wav):

To play a tremolo, pick down on the string then immediately pick up on the string, then immediately pick down, then up, etc. For this part of the lesson we will pick up and down ten times on the first string. This is a very basic tremolo and is much slower than you what you would normally consider a tremolo. This just gives you an idea of the concept.

Part 2 (Simple Tremolo Part 1):

We will be using the same technique that we used in part 1, but this time we will add some frets. Like before, we will play this nice and slow. Once you get the slow part, practice your speed by playing it faster and faster (Simple Tremolo Part 1 Fast!)
Play this tremolo:
1. Play an open E string twice - down - up
2. Place your first finger on the second fret and play twice - down - up
3. Place your third finger on the fourth fret and play twice - down - up
4. Place your first finger on the second fret and play twice - down - up
5. Play an open E string twice - down - up

Now we'll move to the second string, for this tremelo we go straight up and right back down the open strings are only played in the beginning and end. Remember to keep the up and down picking motion and to choke up on the pick if it's getting stuck. (Tremolo with Slide 3 Fast Wav)
