Playing short notes (staccato)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image

Its important to be able to shorten your notes (also called staccato notes) and muting unwanted strings from ringing especially when playing more syncopated styles (funk/fusion)
I use the right hand in a walking motion to do that
1’st finger pluck G string and immediately rest on a string lower , muting unwanted ringing, while the 2’nd finger stops the G string for the preferred length of note – difficult to explain, easier to see in action
I use a basic alternating 2 finger technique 1212 1212 1212 1212
