    An arpeggio is a chord played one note at a time so an arpeggio of C Major would be the notes C E G and C(high) played in sequence.
    An arpeggio is more often played forward then backwards.

    What is fingerstyle guitar? It is the method of plucking the guitar strings directly with the fingertips, fingernails, or picks that are attached to individual fingers. There are different styles of fingerstyle, or fingerpicking, including Travis picking, American primitive guitar, ragtime guitar, Celtic guitar, slack-key guitar, percussive fingerstyle, and jazz fingerstyle. This style of guitar playing is believed to have been inspired by a ragtime piano. Fingerstyle guitar playing is seen in a range of musical genres as it can range in application, tone and melody.

    When playing fingerpicking pattern, you will always want to begin the pattern with a thumb-pluck of the bass note of whatever chord you are playing. This will not always be the sixth string. It may be the fifth string, or the fourth string, depending on what chord you are playing.
