About This Class

Here fingerstyle guitarist Chris Murrin teaches you how to get started with fingerpicking on guitar. In this 27 minute course Chris takes you from the very beginner of fingerstyle and shows you how to develop great technique. By the end you will be playing with all your fingers on your right hand and fingerpicking across all six strings.
