Hello fellow strummers and pickers!
Learn Acoustic Guitar Fingerpicking Introduction
Learn Acoustic Guitar Fingerpicking Patterns 1-3
Watch Part 2 Here.
The weekend is ahead of us so I thought I’d give you some new stuff to learn.
Fingerpicking is awesome and definitely a technique well worth getting down when you’re learning acoustic guitar.
In these 2 videos I will show you how this works as well as 3 patterns to start practicing. These are the most basic patterns to start with and they will help you to get the hang of this awesome new technique. You can really create beautiful sounding passages on the acoustic using fingerpicking and you can play a wide variety of styles. Ranging from ballads to rock and everything in between.
It’s really important to go slowly at first and to not rush things. You need to program and develop your muscle memory correctly and the best way to do that is to go slowly. Things might feel awkward for a while but as long as you persevere you’ll be own your way to become the next James Taylor! I’d like to leave you with one more thought which is to go and find guitarists who use this technique and listen to it often. This will help you to get familiar with the sound and also show you what’s possible. Whenever we learn a new technique it’s essential that you relate to it in a musical context. Otherwise it’s just exercises and patterns and we don’t want that do we?
