Thanks Richard, I used to like that one when I was first engaged in (not) learning how to play.

I’m starting to make some progress with fingerstyle. However for anyone else who’s trying to master this, here is something to watch out for. I’ve been concentrating on Justin’s FO-101 lesson which uses thumb and fingers 1 & 2 and the high E string is not used. I’m using my pinkie on the pickguard as a support.
I’ve now moved to FO-102 which introduces finger 3 to play the high E string. I’ve found that without realising it, my support pinkie has been touching the high E string and now that I’m playing this string it is buzzing.

The answer of course is to move my pinkie a bit but doing that is messing up what I’ve been practicing for the past month. So something to be aware of.
