Below is the lesson for “Fingerpicking Etude no. 9” by Rock Class 101.
In this etude, you will learn 3 themes; two of which involve multiple forms of fingerpicking, while one is solely dedicated to triplet picking. The 3 themes breakdown as follows:
Theme 1: 2 & 3 Finger Picking (Seasoned Beginner / Intermediate)
Theme 2: Triplet Picking (Intermediate)
Theme 3: 3 & 4 Finger Picking (Intermediate / Advanced)
As you can see, theme 1 is the easiest in difficulty. With that said, it still contains some tricky parts, such as stretch chords. Theme 2 tackles one of the most requested techniques, Triplet Picking. Here is an extra lesson explaining the rhythm behind eighth note triplets.
Our final theme is the most difficult and serves as a great exercise for developing dexterity and speed. If you are new to fingerpicking, be sure to check out our Fingerpicking Concepts Course for more exercises to accompany this lesson.
