What is inside this Guitar Fingerpicking Lesson?

In case you are asking yourself or wondering whether or not this is a good lesson for you to watch right now. Let me tell you that I am pretty sure it is!
Here is why:

► If you are a beginner, this is a great place to start learning more about fingerpicking patterns and even receive a quick overview of the basics of fingerstyle guitar.

► If you are an electric guitar player. Or if you are not a beginner but you are looking to start playing fingerstyle guitar. Then this lesson is a great place to start from, for the same reasons stated above!
Some of the things I will share with you today are things I learned myself when I was just starting on Classical Guitar.
For us to have a good foundation, let me start by sharing with you some important principles to consider.
It is worth mentioning that these principles can have exceptions. They are not set in stone!
They are just here to help us organize our picking hand fingering and picking hand motion/pattern.
Fingerpicking Basic Technique
The thumb called (P or T) takes charge of the lowest three strings on the guitar (ide the E, A, and D strings).
Whereas the first finger (the index finger) also referred to as i or 1 will mostly play the G string, the middle finger/the Second finger (which is notated as m or 2) will handle the B string and finally, the 3rd finger (ring finger) will play the high e strings.

Again, these are starting points, but we can always adapt our fingering to what's in front of us.
The patterns displayed in this lesson will mainly use the C, Am, G, and/or G7 and the F chords.

You do not have to adopt the same chords if you think they're too easy or too hard, as the principles will work for any chord.

Remember to use some of these patterns to create interesting musical variations in your guitar playing.
For instance, let's consider you are covering a song or playing one of your original songs. One way of using those patterns is to start the verse with Pattern 1 (or any pattern for that matter) but then switch to Pattern #2 for the chorus (or any other pattern).
Another way is to switch between strumming chords and arpeggiating chords.

P.S: here is another lesson for you that will help you master the basics of fingerpicking!
