Practice Tips

Be mindful of your tempo, allowing the notes to resonate for their full value

Fret the notes by placing your fingertip as close behind the fret as possible (though you can be slightly further behind if your hand stretch is limited)

Maintain proper finger-to-fret assignment (1st fret for the 1st finger, 2nd fret for the 2nd finger, and so on)

Use your fingertips rather than fingerpads

Key Takeaways
