In this quick lesson sponsored by Elixir® Strings, Shawn Persinger demonstrates how to combine scales, chords and arpeggios to add variation and color.

Shawn, guitarist, composer, educator and writer, plays in this lesson Elixir Acoustic 80/20 Bronze Strings with POLYWEB® Coating, 12-String Light.

The long-lasting tone and smooth playability are the reasons I’ve been using Elixir Strings for almost 20 years! Electric or acoustic, nothing else will do.”  ­Shawn Persinger

Elixir Strings provides three string types in its acoustic line, all with the same longest-lasting tone. The Phosphor Bronze strings with NANOWEB® Coating are rich and full-bodied with sparkling high-end clarity and a smooth feel. The 80/20 Bronze with NANOWEB Coating are bright and focused with the same smooth feel as the Phosphor Bronze strings. Rounding out the acoustic line, the 80/20 Bronze with POLYWEB Coating deliver a warm tone and slick and fast feel.  Learn more.
