Explanation: The pattern displayed
above utilizes the thumb, the index and the middle fingers.
In the notated section, on the top, the letter P is used to
indicate the use of the thumb, the letter I is used to
indicate the use of the index finger and the letter M is used
to indicate the use of the middle finger. The chord charts
above them show the chords that are used in this exercise.
This is the last of three patterns used to teach fingerstyle patterns that use the thumb, index
and middle fingers.
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 is similar to the
second pattern but includes the high E string (plucked with
the middle finger) every time a string is plucked with the
thumb. This obviously makes the pattern slightly more
difficult than pattern two.
