  • arpeggios

Welcome to the 6th guitar lesson for beginners. This will be a great lesson, and show you a brand new aspect of playing the guitar. You will learn about fingerpicking, and arpeggiating chords. I'll teach you how to hold your hand correctly, and you'll see it's not that difficult, you just have to get your fingers used to the movement. The things I will teach you in this lesson are:

  • the correct technique of fingerpicking

Watch this lesson many times, practice your technique, and you'll see that you'll be advancing at a rapid pace.

    HI Tom…I am loving your lessons. Thanks. 57 and first time picking up a guitar. Pandemics have a silver lining. Just wondering if you can suggest any other beginner finger picking songs – and the tabs. Thanks!

    PS: Finger tips are killing me!

    Hi, it’s actually a png file, but you should be able to save it by right-clicking on the little pdf icon and pressing save as, or if you just click on the icon, the tab should appear on the screen for you. But anyhow, I’ll just send it to you in an email now 🙂

    Good morning. I have just started on the fingerpicking style. Your pdf file doesn’t seem to be working. It won’t let me save it and when I click it, I see a small picture of it. Thanks for the 2 weeks trial.
