FingerstyleGuitarLessons-10 Gets You Ready To Work It On Out

FingerstyleGuitarLessons-10 is another one of our dynamic free online guitar lessons

This installment of our free online guitar lessons focuses on 3 finger picking. The easy guitar chords used are C, F, and G. The lesson also includes free video guitar lessons and acoustic guitar tabs. Let's take a look at what we've got.

This lesson is designed to do a couple of things:

  • Develop a steady alternating bass with the thumb
  • Develop a full even sound with the fingers

Focusing on these areas will help you accomplish this:

  • Brush your fingers across the strings. The fingers motion moves from the floor side of the string to the ceiling side of the string.
  • Use the left side of your fingertip as the finger points away from you.
  • Grab the full chord even if you're only playing a portion of it.
  • Try to get even volume from each string. One string shouldn't be louder than another.
  • Use proper right hand and left hand position.
  • Hold the guitar in the proper position

The techniques in this lesson are the basis for the next 2 lessons. They'll also help you when you begin playing tunes.
