About this Book
This Training Manual covers 30 different finger-strengthening exercises. You should practise
these exercises slowly and accurately before speeding up. Most of the exercises can and
should also be played on different fret positions. The fingerings attached to the notes are the
ones I normally use when playing these exercises. Feel free using your own fingerings.
This book is equally suitable for beginners and advanced Flatpickers.
About the Author
The singer and Songwriter Alexander Harnisch alias John Scrivo, born in São Paulo Brazil,
enjoyed the feeling of Bossa Nova and the soccer euphoria at the beach of the Copacabana as
a child. For family reasons he grew up with two mother languages, Portuguese and English.
One day he bought an electrical guitar and rehearsed all the solos played by the "Fab Four".
An interesting musical mixture was born now.
His Austrian stepfather born in Vienna, a connoisseur of the Jazz Music, brought him to Big
Bands, Vocal Groups and last but not least to Gypsy Swing. His guitar heroes like Django
Reinhardt, Biréli Lagrène, Stochelo Rosenberg and many others became a part of his instrumental life as a guitar player.
Downstroke versus Upstroke
In this book all examples are played with a downstroke when changing strings in both directions. It‘s not really necessary to stick to that technique when playing a jazz guitar or a steelstring acoustic guitar but to my opinion it sounds better. Alternate only when playing multiple
notes on the same string. When playing triplets, play down-up-down - down-up-down and so
on.
