Comments on: Fingerpicking Technique http://centavrvs.com/?join= Play better with free online guitar lessons.

Some people grow their nails to use them. Some use wearable fingerpicks. I use the fleshy part of my thumb. I typically pluck near the top of my thumb on the left side near the nail. You can adjust your hand to pluck at different angles. I hope this helps!

Thanks for such valuable information shared in easy and fun to learn way.I have also started to try my hand on fingerpicking and i want to ask you whether i should attack the top bass strings with fleshy part of thumb or the part close to nail.As i keep hitting the A when i want to hit E and D when i want to hit A and so on…Please suggest.

Some people brace their picking hand’s pinky finger on the top of the guitar. Others rest their forearm on the top of the guitar. Of course, regular practice will also steady your hand by allowing finer hand and arm movements. I hope this helps!

Playing with others is always fun (and motivating). I recommend asking someone in your community that is tuned into the local scene such as a local teacher, guitar store owner, or a local band. Good luck!

I live in Sandy, UT and would like to attend such a gathering.
