Introduction to Fingerpicking - Fingerpicking in Practice

Rick Graham 210 lessons

Let's get started with our first piece in fingerstyle!

This piece is a chord sequence taken from the famous composition written by Johann Pachelbel called Canon in D. It is an ideal progression to enable you to work on the syncronisation of the left and right hands as it is essential that they work in perfect harmony with one another. As always, ensure a slow and even tempo and try to balance the volume that you produce with each note played. Be aware of your right hand positioning too and keep the wrist straight to avoid any excess tension.

Congrats and welcome to the wonderful world of fingerstyle!
