Lesson Thirteen - 4/4 time and 3/4 Time Fingerstyle Patterns
Memorize the 4/4 and 3/4 time fingerstyle patterns given in this lesson. Please remember:
- Your thumb will play the root of each chord. Up to this point in the book, the root is the lowest note of the chord.
- Each pattern is made up of eighth notes. That is, you will play two notes, evenly spaced, for every tap of your foot (or click on your metronome).
- The real work is going from chord to chord. Try pairing up a few of your favorite chords.
- Below are two video demonstrations. In the first video, I am using the four/four pattern on an Em chord. In the second video, I am using the three/four pattern on an Em chord.
