In this style, the music you hear sounds like more than one instrument playing at the same time. This is because the thumb will usually play a bass/percussion line while the fingers will play a melody and accompaniment line. Sound difficult? It's not easy, but the practice is worth the reward.
Let's take a look at how to accomplish the basic technique of the style. Grab your hollow or semi-hollow bodied guitars and a thumbpick and let's get started!
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!
