In this exercise we have 3 basic difficulties:

1. Each note should sound equally dynamic-wise so practise each little tapping phrase on each own until your dynamics sound as they should

2. The notes that you don’t play should NOT make any sound so when changing strings watch it!
You have to mute the strings you don’t play. The low strings with your right hand and the higher ones with your left.

3. Timing is always important so start listening the exercise to a very low tempo to understand the rhythmic values and always practice slow!
