Tobias Hurwitz: string skipping lesson

String Skipping I, from Expanding Technical Skills III by Tobias Hurwitz: S
tring skipping is the technique of playing single-note passages that skip over strings. This intricate approach presents some technical challenges because it's much easier to play on the same string or on adjacent strings than to skip over strings, especially while alternate picking. Often, string skipping is achieved with hybrid picking. This is when a right-hand finger, instead of the pick, is used to strike the note on the next string. But hybrid picking is a topic for another lesson, so for now we will focus on string skipping while using the pick.
