@Cue  Made me laugh.  I guess I should spend more time practicing.

There are effectively two melody lines (on the same stave) which might be confusing you:

In example 1:

Your fingers play C on the 2nd string and G on the 3rd: C(1.5) G(1) C(1.5)

While your thumb plays C on the 5th string and E on the 4th: C(1) E(1) C(1) E(1)

(1) is 1 beat / crotchet / quarter note
(1.5) is 1.5 beats / dotted crotchet / dotted quarter note

Both lines add up to 4 beats.

I think it's the C(1.5) on the second last 'AND' that's confusing you - play it on the 'AND' between '3' and '4' and let it ring while your thumb plays the E on '4'

Hope I've got that right!

Sorry, I don't understand what you're asking about :)

hi folks, first post for me. would some kind soul be want to explain why Justin brings Don't Think Twice as an example of what he's talking about at the end of the video? I don't understand the relation. Is it the picking pattern or just a random example of how a specific pattern works for chords having the same root note?

Thank you

I'd say it's the picking pattern, yes. Then again perhaps he didn't really consciously play that - he just wanted to play an example and that was the first thing that came to mind??

Cheers, I was unsure 'cos I tried to figure out the song with that pickin pattern and the right chords but it didn't sound right. But I guess it's just my poor skill ;D

Hi All,

This is my first ever posting on a message board, apologies in advance if I've posted incorrectly.
I LOVE Justin's site, its incredible.
Anyway, help please. 
About 2  months ago, I found a lesson on Justinguitar.com which showed how to finger pick / and strum a song, it was very cool.  However, every since I have tried to locate it (I never saved to favourites), I cannot find it.  I've checked out the Folk Fingerstyle 1 and 2, and the Percussive Fingerstyle, and had a go trawling through the other lesson index's with no luck.

Could anybody help out, I would still love to find that lesson,
Thanks a lot,
Marie

Hi Justin.  Your site is the best one out there for learning guitar. 

I just ordered your RUST DVD to take my playing and songwriting to the next level.  Now my head is about to explode.

I want to incorporate finger picking and distinctive strumming patterns into my playing.  Unfortunately, adding another monthly expense to convert my fingernails to guitar picks isn't going to happen (until after I'm making the big bucks writing music, of course).  Using thumb and finger picks seem like a disaster waiting to happen at each and every live performance.

You probably know where this is going.  Is there a reason why you didn't write the Fingerstyle lessons to use Hybrid Picking, or at least offer it as an alternative?  That isn't a criticism.  I'm asking because I'm wondering if there is a problem with this approach.  I've spent a little time working on hybrid picking in the past and I am mediocre at best.  So is it just too difficult to be considered a good technique?  If it isn't then it seems like the most flexible option for most guitarists.  What are your thoughts?
