ongratulations! You just learned one of the most basic fingerpicking patterns. We can take this same pattern and vary the order in which we pick. The last example was T, I, M, R
where we first picked with our thumb, then the index, then the middle, then the ring, and then just repeated the process over again. What if we played the exact thing, but in reverse. This means R, M, I, T
. The result is shown below.
Set your loop preferences in the bottom frame to "Forever" and play through the example. If it's too fast, set the tempo in the bottom frame to a lower value and re-play the example. Try to make each note ring continuously until the next time you strike it...
