Harmonic Minor Scale PART 2: JOHN MCLAUGHLIN GUITAR TECHNIQUE:

Exercise 4: John Mclaughlin scale guitar fingering technique. This method again employs strict alternate picking starting on a down stroke. John Mclaughlin’s guitar fingering is unique in that you can play at very fast tempo’s alternate picking due to the simple fingering and the way it repetitively crosses the guitar strings .
