Fingerpicking For Beginners- Learn Fingerstyle Guitar

For those of you that have a guitar laying around the house and have never picked it up  (or picked it up years ago and want to learn), here’s your chance to learn fingerstyle guitar  and be able to play a little in 12 minutes or less!

Fingerpicking for Beginners- Learn Fingerstyle Guitar… what’s it all about?

Many of the fingerstyle guitar lessons that I’ve come across on YouTube are either too complex for guitar beginners, forcus on teaching a lot of guitar theory and not how to play, or just not explaining things well enough. If you can count to four, watch the first video and try to play along with the lesson, you will be amazed that you can actually play guitar (or even just a little bit in 12 minutes or less).

Rather than showing you an entire picking pattern on the left hand, lesson #1 of Fingerpicking For Beginners starts out with showing you two notes that you play or “Hit” as I like to call it with your thumb. You can simply stay right there, pause the video and practice just that until you feel you “have it down.” Then play some more of the video and add the extra notes with your index and middle finger.
Some people are different than others and pick things up quicker… but that doesn’t mean that you can’t become a good guitarist with practice. The idea is to take the lesson in small stages, and try not to get overwhelmed by the whole lesson. Learning fingerstyle guitar is not the easiest of things to do, but practicing small chunks of the lesson will make it easier. The four lessons below are accelerated lessons and really meant to be something that is learned over a course of a month or two for the average person. Whatever you do, understand that repetition and learning in small stages is more effective than trying to learn everything in one shot.

Here’s some commonly asked questions about learning fingerstyle guitar:

Q. How much time per day should I practice?
A. Practice a small part of the lesson(s) for as long as it takes to play it correctly a few times in a row. This doesn’t have to be hours either. When you get something right and it sounds good, make sure you go back to it again as frequently as possible. It’s better to practice a little each day than trying to cram it all on a weekend. Even 10 minutes is good, as long as you do it every day.

Q. The two fingered chords that are being taught… are these real chords?
A. Yes, very much so. There’s many variations to the standard chords… these are among the easiest to start with.

Q. Are there songs that can be played with these easy chords?
A. Yes, absolutely, in fact many many many many (too many manys) songs use these exact same chords shown in Fingerpicking for Beginners, lessons 1 through 4. I will be adding more videos as soon as possible so bookmark this page and sign up to the mailing list (below the videos).

Q. What if I’m having trouble with a part of the fingerpicking lessons.. Is their additional help?
A. Yes! There’s a few things we can do to help you. One would be to e mail me at . Soon I am going to be offering personalized video lessons either on Skype of Google Hangouts, so please enquirer about that.
