Is the guitar you play for you? If you have this problem, I hope you are still a beginner. Because it is very difficult to switch from a right-handed guitar to a left-handed guitar after you have played the guitar for a long time. Even so, this question deserves our attention. If you are left-handed but are using a standard right-handed guitar, you will definitely have problems with string inaccuracies.When your skills are getting more and more mature, the accuracy of plucking strings becomes especially important. This is why the left-hander uses the left hand to pluck the string, and the right-hander uses the right hand to pluck the string.

Are you focusing on the strings? If you are worried about the accuracy of the string when you are playing, so keep looking down at the plucking hand,then it is no wonder that you will ignore the plucking. You can solve this problem by practicing some picking practice tracks, back down these practice tracks, and watch the plucking hands while playing.

Tips for improving the accuracy of plucking

If you find a problem, fix it. If your plucking string is not accurate, in fact, it will progress on its own as time goes by. But it may take a long time to wait.

So, if you feel that this problem is hindering your progress, put it in the first place to solve it, spend some time each day to improve a little.

Playing classical music (finger or pick)

Even if you think that playing classical music is both boring and new, you still need to practice. Many powerful guitarists attribute the ultra-high plucking skills to practicing classical music. The following Etude are great for practicing right hand skills:

Kreutzer, Etude No. 7

Bach, Sonata IV (for Violin)

These pieces force your right hand to make many correct interleaved leaps and exercise excellent plucking skills. The best way is to concentrate on the music at the beginning, that is, don’t put too much time on the plucking inaccuracies. Once you are back, look carefully at the accuracy of your string. If you have spent 2 months or more to improve your plucking accuracy. But if you haven’t seen any significant progress, you may need to change your playing skills.

You may need to completely change your playing skills, which is a tough decision. Because it may actually make you regress at the beginning, in fact, this may indeed make your level back to the past, as if to return to the origin. However, if you don’t see improvements to your technology, you may need to change it. But because you don’t see progress, you have to change. Realizing that this obstacle has brought you into the dead end of the performance is important because you will stay there for a year, or ten years.

You need to consider changing these habits:

Change the way you take the pick.

The pick should not be perpendicular to the string, but turn a little down.

This pops up and the sound is smooth, whether it is dialing down or up.

Change the support of the right hand, do not lean on the fingerboard (except in the case of damper).

Whether or not the handle is supported on the fingerboard is actually controversial. But this may be the cause of your troubles.

Relax your wrists. If you feel nervous about your wrist, it is recommended that you subconsciously ask yourself if you are relaxing your wrist muscles.

Relax your grip. You have to hold the pad correctly, instead of holding it tight to prevent it from falling.
