Root On Low E

Now let's check out how to adapt our finger picking pattern to work with chords have the root note on the low E string, like E minor and G major for example.

A minor and C major both have their root note on the A string, so that's where we had our thumb. Now for E minor and G major we have our root note on the low E string. Now you're free to choose any of the remaining 5 notes for your index and middle finger, and they'll all sound good in different ways. Let's take a moment to explore all the options.
