Overview of the Series
This is a series on songs that use fingerpicking. What distinguishes these from thumb picking and pluck and chuck songs is that those songs tend to have short repetitive patterns in them while these songs tend to be more flowing and less rhythmic in their style. Some have patterns that are based on other rhythms like 3-3-2, but generally, they feel more fluid.
Each song has a video lesson, tabs, chord diagrams, and insightful tips (if I got around to finishing it). The songs go in order from easy to more difficult and are grouped by the techniques they use. There is also a planned sequence for learning different techniques, so the easiest way to master the technique is to follow the songs in order.
