Beginner Fingerstyle Guitar or Fingerpicking (or sometimes referred to as fingerstyle) guitar might seem a bit confusing when you first try it but, , fingerstyle guitar playing will become second nature with just a little repetition (practice)!

A correct fingerpicking hand position (right hand) will use your thumb, index, and middle fingers for picking. In this particular beginner fingerstyle guitar lesson, your thumb will pluck the 4th (D) string and the 3rd (G) string. Your index finger will pluck the 2nd (B) string. Your middle finger will pluck the 1st (E) string.

In general and depending on what chord you are playing, different strings will be plucked. But in this particular guitar lesson, we feature a two fingered D type of chord (left hand) which is very easy to play for a first time beginner on the guitar. Sometimes your fingers may pluck or “hit” other strings with your right hand, but try to stick to the easy beginner fingerstyle guitar lesson that is featured in the video.

  17. Hi Bob,
    I want to tell you how much I have appreciated your Easy Fingerstyle Course. I have been on your Lesson 1 now for
    about 5 weeks and now have the the style pattern down pretty well. Hopefully by the end of next month I should be
    able to have my fingers trained enough to be able to do the pattern sequence in my sleep and without thinking about it.
    The next challenge will be learning the chord change timing using the fingerstyle method.
    Thanks again for your instructional video's..
