In a general sense, each finger of the right hand is assigned a string for any given music piece, section or passage. Each finger of the right (or picking hand) is assigned a letter to organize this process. These letters are abbreviations of Spanish words which are:
P = Pulgar = Thumb
I = Indice = Fore Finger
M = Medio = Middle Finger
A = Anular = Ring Finger
These are sometimes notated in music for classical guitar when necessary for clarification. Other times, the player is left to decide for himeself based upon a general assumed technique of assigning a finger per string. In these exercises the proper finger for the porper string will be indicated at least once. Thereafter you can assume it stays the same until otherwise indicated.
Typically, the thumb and three largest fingers of the right hand pluck the strings. The normal position is for the hand to be shaped as if it were loosely holding an apple, baseball or tennis ball with the wrist slightly bent, the forearm resting on the upper large section of the guitar body so the fingers are positioned at the strings over the soundhole. Plucking the strings involves grazing over the string with the fingernail tips or first with the fleshy part of the fingertips and then over the fingernail tips in order to sound a note.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
