This time we'll play the exercise with our fingers, doing a finger picking pattern. You can also do this with a pick or with hybrid picking. I find the best sound for jazz style is to use finger picking.

Another thing we're adding this time is to rhythmically separate the bass notes from the chords. This really helps give the chords some swinging jazz feel.
