Hey Andrew, I wanted to give these a go as I want to improve my fingerpicking technique and boy its improved so much in just one week. So thanks for doing this.
I gave Etude No.4 a go but i had to use the print side of my thumb as my nail has just fallen off so it kept making this catching noise as i hit the string.
I also added a funky drum pattern to keep me in time.
Now time to try Etude 5!
Thanks again!March 13, 2017 at 1:51 pm #10657brettboyParticipant
Hi Andrew! Thanks for the fun challenge! I chose Etude No.2. After 2 weeks of nonstop practicing and nearly 30 rejected video takes I’m ready to share my best attempt! Here it is:

Here’s a new recording of Fingerpicking Etude #3 — a little quicker pace and a little smoother-sounding play. Hope you can hear some improvement.
Now working on Fingerpicking Etude from the intermediate list, and I hope to record that before the March challenge deadline.
Really enjoying listening to others’ posts, too. The challenge was a great idea. I hope we’ll do more in the future.

Hey Sheryl, great improvement and very well played! Here’s a little video offering a tip on left hand finger form, this could also be helpful to others 🙂 And yes, we will be doing another challenge in the Summer!
Great jobs Fedor and Charles, thanks so much for sharing 🙂March 18, 2017 at 8:52 pm #10701ukukelley1Participant
Andrew — Thanks for the encouraging words and for the video instruction. I’ll practice the right curved finger form — glad to get it right early in my playing!
