"Pluck and Release of Tension"


Run time: 9:39

"Not releasing tension, or not quickly relasing tension after plucking in the right hand may be one of the most common limiting factors guitarists have. Holding tension creates all sorts of problems musically and technically. You can bump into other strings by accident, you make larger, inefficient motions, and this leads to a technical limitation. When you relax quickly, you pluck again quickly. Fortunately, this is something easily trained, and you will notice the results everywhere!"
