The Mechanics

In this first lesson we'll look at the basic mechanics of fingerpicking, how to position your hand and palm as well as which fingers to use for which strings and the best way to stroke the strings. Now, there are as many variations of these basic mechanics as there are guitar players, and they all have different pros and cons. But over the years I've perfected the method that I find most versatile and useful. And if you start out learning my way of doing this, you can always adapt it if you want down the road.
