In the Friendly School’s Introduction to Fingerstyle Guitar class, you will learn how to develop a solid right hand technique for playing fingerstyle guitar and how to link chords together to play an entire song using fingerstyle technique.  You will learn picking patterns that can be used in many styles of music, and we will explore how to use these patterns in two particular songs. To get the most out of this class, you should be comfortable with open chords and basic minor barre chords. Feel free to bring a recording device. Transcriptions of the guitar tablature of study materials for the class will be provided.
