Fun with p i m

  3. Put fingers on the same string. This requires more precise sequential planting to get a good sound. In some cases (the last one), it’s very awkward, and one of those instances where you take something further than needed to the original feels easier.

These two methods of varying p i m can be applied to any arpeggio.
