Watch the Thirds Groove in E Study online guitar lesson by Christie Leneé from Creative Fingerstyle Guitar for Songwriters

"Speed is just precision." The more time you spend on your rhythm practice, the higher your precision as a player will become. It's important to always look at your right hand picking patterns and look for ways to be cleaner, more efficient, and more precise. In the upcoming performance examples, I'll be giving you some great workouts for improving your right hand fingerstyle precision, but these exercises are just examples for you to build from. You should be taking the concepts here and applying them to some of your own progressions and grooves. That's how you find yourself turning practice time into songwriting time.
