"The Picking Hand Grimoirium is a very thorough and comprehensive catalog of exercises that should be highly beneficial for anyone looking for a great picking/plucking workout. Any fans of Michael Manring's exercises involving permutations will dig it, hugely!" Norm Stockton
Orange County, CAAdditional notes from the author:
By using this method, it insures complete picking-hand development before adding the fretting hand. Since the exercises are "micro" picking-hand movements only, detailed attention can be placed on technique, tempo, rhythm, dynamics and consistent string attack for optimum picking-hand development. The exercises can and should be applied to ALL picking techniques that the musician chooses in their form of expression such as free strokes, rest strokes, alternate picking, economy picking, hybrid picking, finger picking, tremolos, slapping, double thumping, plucking, etc. As the musician progresses through the various exercises, new picking patterns will be encountered that could aid the musician in composing new and unique ideas. The permutations in the Picking Hand Grimoirium were created by computer program developed by the author. This insures that all permutations of strings and notes-per-strings are included. The Grimoirium also includes a chart of rhythms and MIDI files of the rhythms that can be applied to the exercises. The rhythms are grouped into three and four divisions of a beat or triplets and sixteenth notes. And to track your progress, a copy of The Picking Hand Grimoirium Log Chart is also included. I would like to note that the Picking Hand Grimoirium concentrates on one specific aspect of musicianship, the picking hand and its development. To become a well rounded musician with the ability to express oneself completely, all aspects of musicianship are required in one's development and should not be neglected. Also, the exercises in the Grimoirium can be considered non-musical. We must look past the exercises, since they are non-musical, to see the rewards that we may reap after the picking hand is developed and offers no physical limitations for one's expression.
