For this technique, you may play any of the fingerpicking patterns we have studies so far, but you should play it as thought the high E string were off limits. Simply move the pattern into the inner strings of the guitar, without changing the sequence of events. The bass note will remain the same as it was before.
The effect that this has is it brings out the alto tones of the chords, at the expense of the soprano tones. Think of it like a the difference between a violin, and a viola. This technique can enhance the mood and flavor of certain songs, or sections of songs, that would be well served by a slightly darker, mellower, tonality.
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!
