  1. Thanks Justin. I started playing at 63 in August and I've heard how finger picking sounds and it's pretty amazing, so you've got me hooked. The only thing I'm curious about does can you play the same songs as with a pick? Peace out

  2. Alessandro Meschiari

    Please, tell us more, like how to combine the bass and the melody in a fingerstyle song

  3. Thanks for sharing, God bless.

  4. I got it thank you wow

  5. If slash and machine gun Kelly had a kid

  6. How do you do this without his freakishly long fingers. lessons for people with normal hands would be far more useful!

  7. I really appreciated the lesson. It is good to have someone teach how, I have been struggling and was about to give up & lay my guitar down until I came across this video. Thanks Justin I will practice more now

    Was it just me who felt like slash?

  9. 0:19 – Holy crap, it's a dude!
    Sorry, that was a little jarring to be honest.

  10. Me: "watches video" ok seems simple enough
    Also me: "goes to try it" What is this SoRcErY?
    Thx for the tips, very helpful lesson 🙂

  11. Thank you!

  17. Great lesson Justin, Thankyou so much.

  18. What if our thumb isn’t bent backwards like yours

  19. The thing is your advice on "thumbs up" shape is sound, but you are still playing the other wrong way you've shown. Am i seeing wrong? Your index finger gets in the way of your thumb, too.

  20. Only people with thumbs longer than their fingers can use some of this advice
