Those are telling you which fingers to use on those strings.Pebber has some videos, titled something like "How to take the online lessons," where he explains a lot of these concepts.

Those are marking "string sets" or string pairs.So at the top you have 6,5 then 4,3, then 2,1 and you see the "down" "up" pick markings at the bottom.So you pick down on 6, up on 5, down on 4, up on 3, down on 2, up on 1.

Yeah, it's worth it. I haven't had the chance to make another video yet, but one will come.Start with scalpel.But if you decide you want to play with sarod, Pebber has a great video where he explains how to get the motion down before using a guitar.

Here's a good example of my "before" picking, from December, 2014.I'll have to record one from now, showing my right hand position. That will take a couple of days most likely.

Hey Paul,My older videos probably show some pretty sour picking. I'll check later. I'll also try to get a video of my picking today. There will certainly be an apparent difference.But it'll take me until later this evening. At work for a while yet.

I'd say it's your call, but you can definitely learn scalpel or sarod.I never learned anything but self-taught picking methods for 30 years, and started working on scalpel and sarod 2 years ago and saw a nearly immediate improvement in my accuracy, speed, tone, and clarity. 2 years later I am a much cleaner player from having learned that. It gives me much tighter control over my movements.If you're curious to see what it's like, just take 15 minutes a day for a week or 2 doing scalpel only. It'...

Still do this from time to time, and I play a lot better now.This is how I've started playing Sugar, by Maroon 5:

No worries. Video embedding is a little tricky here until you get the hang of it.Looks like you are focusing intently on moving just your thumb and forefinger. That's definitely the right way to get started with scalpel picking. It's a bit weird at first.

Hi Janine,You'll need to fix that video embed. It should look like this:1 [Video]http://youtube/sSXrvDX0Utc[/Video] Make sure there's no 's' after the http, and place a [/Video] at the end.
