Cool lesson. Nothing I didn't know but it was a cool tune. Will be sure to learn it once I come home from school
Great lesson. This was really useful.
i liked it alot. Before my right hand placement was slighty wrong and this cleared things up
Could you do a more intermediate/advanced fingerpicking lesson to? this was great, but I didn´t learn so much that I didn´t already know.
keep the good work up!
Hey Rob! Ofcourse more advanced lessons will be there - we just can't go onto the advanced stuff if we don't cover the basics so be patient! Not all members here know how to fingerpick so let's do it step-by-step.
you can always tell the difference between something you had to write and something that time wrote the advanced chording lesson was magical and i wouldnt know where to begin with the compliments about that song. this on the other hand a good song but g d and a few other chords finger picked in my oppinion the key to classical music and fingerpicking is time never rush any creation of a song i personally feel like this was a bit rushed but it is just the basics as you said so what can you expect. great job i'll be waiting and watching for more fingerpicking/classical lessons
None of these lessons are actually songs - my songs are more developed because i can repeat some verses and chords and all the stuff.... and for the lessons i try not to repeat the same parts so we can cover more things.
this is a cool lesson there is alot of times where this techinque works well. i found this lesson fairly easy beacuse for the first 2 years i played guitar, i never used a pick regardless of what i played. rob if you want a little extra challange with this one.. try using a pick, and using your middle ring and pinky fingers for the picking part.
Thanks for the lesson. The licks are very similar to a song I know so this lesson will not be hard to master Hopefuly
I'm a bit confused about the Csus2 chord. If I understand right, E should be replaced with D, but E is played in the Csus2, too. Why so?
I thought the chord should look like
Pavel, I would appreciate it if you help with it:)
You are right BUT as i mentioned in previous lesson, we don't have to strictly follow the theoretical basics and than we can get totally kick-ass sounding chords. In this case - the chord i play with E sound MUCH better than if we played it with G.
We can say it's a Cadd2 (C added 2) but again we only add it on B string. That's why i always say:
"Don't go for 100% theory, scales, diagrams and all the theoretical stuff. It is useful BUT it also prevents the imagination from working because you are concentrated on mathematics rather then sounding."
All the lessons i have written for GMC have some rule exceptions. I said Csus2 because it's the closest to Csus2 but there can always be some notes outside the chord but it doesn't mean it's mistake.
Music is not about rules - it's about how it sounds! I hope this answer will be good for you!
Yep, thanks for a little lecture;)
pff have to get used to handpicking i have the feeling my hand is like a wooden plank lol
i love finger pickin!
wow i suck at finger picking XD
