Left hand

Choosing the left hand position - always be upfront on the melodic lines, considering both bass and melody to find the right position. Bass and melody fingers should move in the same direction on the fretboard. The position should give possibility for sustaining and bending a melody tone with one finger while shifting the bass tones with the other fingers - to create the effect of two different sounding instruments.

Bass  Melody
 Pos 1
 4  3-2-1
 Pos 2
 3  4-2-1
 Pos 3
 2  4-3-1
 Pos 4
 1  4-3-2

Use silence and rests extensively to create rhythmical diversity - in order to compensate for the natural physical limitations of this hybrid technique.
