I have a question about alternate fingerpicking. Basically, is it best
for the long term to strive to alternate 1-2-1-2 ... throughout a passage
(if not the entire song)? Or is it okay to use the same finger multiple
times from time to time?

Example snippet from Danko Jones' Lovercall. I'm trying to alternate
1-2-1-2, but my fingers want to go 1-2-1-1. I.e. my index finger wants
to continue upward after playing the D string and play the A string also
on notes 3 & 4 of this passage.

Left Hand: 1 3 2 1
G ---------------
D -----5--4------
A -----------4---
E --4------------
Right Hand: 1 2 1 2 (What I strive to do)
1 2 1 1 (What my fingers keep wanting to do)

I know that with enough practice, I'll be able to alternate 1-2-1-2 with
ease. I just wonder though if it is okay not to alternate in this or
other similar situations if the fingers want to do otherwise.

Thanks a bunch,

I was wondering, being a newbie here at GMC, if the following kind of questions are okay to ask.

1. You are trying to learn/tab a song and you're stuck at a particular place. Can you ask for help here?

2. You've tabbed or have tab for a particular song but you are stuck with the fingering?

I guess I was worried about any legal issues with all the tab sites out there being shut down.

Rush. I had never heard of Rush until I saw the "All the World's a Stage" album. The cover caught my eye; I was a bedroom drummer at the time. I bought the album, loved it and the rest is history!!

The Rolling Stones. Keith Richards and Mick Taylor. Enough said.

AC/DC. No fuss, no muss. Pure energetic rock 'n' roll.

I just signed up. I've been thinking about doing so for awhile. I'm a 49 year old rock star wanna be. I bought myself an electric guitar when I turned 40 and have been noodling in the bedroom concert hall since then. I have a gold sparkle Cort Impala (a Strat copy), a red Epiphone Dot with gold trim, and an Epiphone white Les Paul custom. The Epi Les Paul is my main guitar. My amp is the 60W Vox Valvetronix.

I hope to use this site's lessons to improve my playing to the point where I can get out of the bedroom and play in front of a real audience smile.gif .

Rock on!!
