Now I'm going to play through this whole practice tune, at a tempo that's comfortable for me. Make sure you put down your guitar and just watch and listen and then play it on your own afterwards. I can't stress it enough that the most important thing here is to not push yourself forward too quickly.

I hope you've had fun with this very first tutorial on finger picking. Finger picking truly is one of the greatest things about playing acoustic guitar, and there's immense freedom in mastering this technique as it'll eventually enable you to imitate pianos, basses, rhythm sections and play chords and melodies at the same time. It's a ton of work and a ton of fun! Just make sure you progress slowly and patiently. Have fun with it!
