(F1.0) Making a Good Sound

The rest stroke or follow through is a good habit to develop right from the beginning. Experiment with different pick angles to achieve different tone. Practice picking using down-stokes, up-strokes, and alternate picking. Make sure your left hand is fretting clean by being up on your fingertips. Remember to practice strumming chords for each new song you set out to learn. All these things will become second nature over time.
