Explanation: The pattern displayed
above utilizes just the thumb and the index fingers. In
the notated section, on the top, the letter P is used to
indicate the use of the thumb and the letter I is used to
indicate the use of the index finger. The chord charts above
them show the chords that are used in this exercise.
This is the second of the three patterns used to teach
fingerstyle patterns that use only the thumb and index.
After learning these, feel free to create and experiment with
variations of your own. Below the notation section is
the tablature. If you are unfamiliar with how guitar
tablature works, CLICK HERE
for an explanation. This pattern alternates between the
thumb and the index, with the thumb playing a different string
each time, while the index just does the high E.
