First:

A quick note about the Thumb Pick

Now you will see I am using a thumb pick in the videos These can be got at any good music store


The Thumb Pick is a very useful tool for guitarists

With it you can play most styles of music, it is not as limiting as the ordinary flat pick (plectrum)

If you are using a thumb pick, only use the tip of it, they can take a bit of time to feel comfortable with

See Video

If you use a thumb pick practise this and the other picking patterns thoroughly to get used to the thumb pick, practise with all the different chords you have learned here too  

Remember this specially condensed course is structured in such a way that if you do everything shown here you are virtually guaranteed to succeed
