Lessons A Beginning Fingerstyle PatternJanuary 8, 20206Comments by Griff I know it’s not blues, but sometimes it’s just fun to try a little something different… This is a simple fingerstyle pattern that is a good way to start to get your picking hand working this way. Hope you dig the video! Griff 6 replies to "A Beginning Fingerstyle Pattern" Doug January 9, 2020 Hi Griff, really like your tutoring, I been retired for a lot of years now so don’t have a lot of funds for individual lessons. I still sound terrible with the fat finger sounds, really don’t know my cords, use my smart phone for tuning. but I wonder if you would say what the guitar is tuned to in open strings before your samples.. I don’t ever expect to be any good at this but still like to try.. Many Thanks from Northern Ontario, Canada. Not a lot to do here in the winter but shovel snow, lol Reply blind Lame Bob January 9, 2020 Mr. Griff Since you go acoustic and you are a skilled guitarist, I have a request. There is an incredible classical piece that has made appearances in the rock world over the years. And there is need for a well thought out lesson for this melody. Would you consider doing a stand alone lesson for Bach’s Bourrée in E minor, BWV 996. Chances are some others would appreciate this also. Reply Chris J CLEMANS January 9, 2020 Thanks Griff That really helped alot with some sticky spots great lesson. Reply tony January 9, 2020 Morning eastern board . checked this lesson out and then to watch Merel Travis do a solo of midnight special . He is only using his thumb and first fingers only . He is a guitar great and can play great . Reply Donovan Hulbert January 9, 2020 Dust in the wind stuff. Reply Art January 9, 2020 Thanks Griff…I’ve always used the “Travis” picking style, which seems to work with a lot of tunes, and so it is nice to see an alternative pattern that works well.
