In our Lessons we will be covering some of the most common folk guitar techniques.

These techniques include fingerpicking, alternate tunings, and the use of a capo. We will also provide some tips and tricks for mastering these techniques.

Part 1: Fingerpicking

Fingerpicking is a technique that is used to create a more intricate sound on the guitar. Instead of strumming the strings with a pick, you use your fingers to pluck the strings. There are many different fingerpicking patterns that you can learn, but one of the most common patterns is called the Travis picking pattern. This pattern is used in many different folk songs, and it involves playing a bass note with your thumb and then playing a melody with your fingers.
