Classical Patterns

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

Another classical study following our 'Classical melody in C' ActionTab.

This ActionTab involves some quite complex fingerpicking patterns - the good news is that the fretboard hand fingers are relatively easy. However you will still need good control to play this piece cleanly at the normal speed pace.

The fingerpicking patterns alternate, mostly around a T1213212 pattern (see beginner fingerpicking articles on this on the site if you feel lost). As usual....The thumb plays the descending bass notes, whilst the melody is fingerpicked along the top 3 strings. Hammer ons and a few slides are added at key points to keep things interesting. Once you get the hang of it - try applying these fingerpicking patterns across other chords and have fun!
