Thumb & Fingerstyle
by Michael O'Dea
I've been playing guitar for ~8 years now and I've become entranced by the skill and sound of Chet and Tommy. I decided I must learn how to do this and train my thumb to be independent. I mostly played blues for the past 8 yearsso fingerpicking itself is new-ish to aside from classical gas I suppose.
What I want to ask is basically I've been chugging my thumb along like instructed in the beginning but I just can't get it to keep going. Is there a way to do this effectively? Also I have been trying this with the song Freight Train (Chet's arrangement) Is there a place to get a good tab for this or for a step by step DVD on how to play this or even just get started on fingerstyle properly?
THANKS, quite lengthy I know, sorry about that!
