Welcome back to another learning journey! This week though, the student is becoming the teacher. That’s right, I am putting on my teacher hat and showing you how to play a fingerstyle pattern. This was something I actually learned when I began taking guitar lessons a few years ago and was one of the only things I still remembered, so I decided that it was the perfect thing to teach you all!
I’m not going to lie, I hate watching myself teach on video and it gave me a new respect for Katia, who does it every week in EDTC. What I am saying is that I am super awkward in the video, so you’ll have to forgive me, but I hope you enjoy and learn a bit about fingerpicking as well!
Also, here are the chords that I used in my video if you would like to try it out yourself:
Count On Me – Bruno Mars
Riptide – Vance Joy
Step 1: Find your chord – This will change as you play throughout your song
Step 2: Pick the 5th (A) string with your thumb
Step 3: Pick the 2nd and 3rd (B and G) strings together with your two fingers
Step 4: Pick the 4th (D) string with your thumb
Step 5: Again, pick the 2nd and 3rd (B and G) strings together with your two fingers
Repeat Steps 2-5 throughout the song. Hope you Enjoy!
