In this first lesson we'll apply our finger picking pattern to the C major shape and move it around the neck to explore all the great sounds we can get out of that.

At this point I'm fairly confident I've made my point that you don't wanna push yourself too quickly and if you focus on your technique, the speed, the volume and the feel will come naturally. So with that in mind we'll start carefully using some metronome tracks, but remember that if your right hand fingers are crunching up or your notes are uneven in volume or rhythm, you need to spend some time with the examples on your own at a slower tempo. If you try to push it you'll only make it worse. So with all that in mind, let's hear the example with a metronome.

Remember that if it's too fast or too difficult, just watch and listen and then work it up to speed on your own.
