Tremolo Exercises

This is a set of three tremolo exercises based on the A minor chord. The tablature link of the exercises can be found at the top. Look in the “Technique” section of this site to see the “Tremolo Technique” video lesson if you don’t know how to play a tremolo.

Tremolo Exercises

Exercises 1-2-3

Hints: All three exercises can each be repeated in a continuous loop. Be very relaxed as you perform these exercises, and go very slow at first. Have an evenness in tone, volume, and spacing in the tremolo, even at a slow speed. Only after you can perform these exercises with total evenness should you attempt to speed up the tremolo a bit. Remember, developing a tremolo is a long process, and attempting to skip steps will result in a bad and sloppy tremolo.
