Hello, friends and experts! I'd like to know what you knowledgeable people think about when and how one might start learning to fingerpick, especially through the GuitarTricks system. I'm a quarantine beginner who's really, really happy I finally started learning guitar. One of my eventual goals is to learn fingerstyle, and my current plateau - strumming away on open-chord songs in the beginner module - has me really hankering to learn to make different sounds with the instrument.

I listen to experts, so hit me with that advice.

Hi canaan.morse,

Thanks for this question. It's a great question. If you're a beginner, then I suggest you go through the Guitar Fundamentals Level 1 and Level 2 and then jump into ACoustic Level 1 and then Acoustic level 2.

This is the best path for you to take, especially if you are interested in learning fingerpicking. There are a lot of fingerpicking lessons in the Acoustic course, but in order to learn these properly, you must learn the fundamentals.

I hope you keep it up!

Let us know if you have any questions.

Best,

Billy
