What if you could spice up your playing, play more authentically in different styles, and have more fun just with one simple technique?

BOOYAH. You can. It’s called articulation! It’s easy on a fretted instrument to just play each note normally, but where’s the fun in that? In this lesson, I’ll show you some different ways to scoop and slide into your notes to sound more like a wind instrument or a human voice.

Adding some interesting articulations to your playing is like adding the perfect sauce to your food – it makes everything else sound/taste better.
