Welcome to the 2nd Fingerstyle Adventure.
In this second adventure, we´re going to build on what you’ve learned in the first.
We’ll start with fingerpicking patterns used by top artists in Folk, Country, Pop and more. Many believe these types of patterns originated with Merle Travis, in fact they´ve been dubbed “Travis Picking”. They use techniques like alternate bass note runs and what I call the pinch. A good part of this course will be dedicated to solo guitar playing. You´re going to learn to play the melody along with the fingerpicking patterns, as they go hand and hand. A lot of the patterns you use in fingerpicking will be used in solo guitar playing and vice versa.
We´ll have an introduction to Drop D tuning, and go into some techniques to embellish your fingerstyle playing, including hammer-ons, pull-offs, and bass runs.
Let’s do this!
