5 Fingerpick

Animated 5 Fingerpick tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills section on Fingerpicking.

This exercise will help you get your little finger used to fingerpicking. This simple fingerpicking ActionTab uses your thumb and all 4 fingers to play across 2 rather lovely A chord variations: A 13th (no 3rd) and A aug5 sus4. Don't worry about the weird names for now, just enjoy their sound!

The fingerpicking pattern follows T1234321 (repeat) across each of the five strings used in each chord. Practice slowly at first to get a regular rhythm across each chord before building up speed.

If you are finding the chord changes difficult, just apply the fingerpicking pattern across a more familiar chord first - and get it right - before working on getting smooth chord changes!
