Hello friends,
Welcome to another fingerstyle guitar tutorial. In today’s session I’ll be breaking down some very beginner friendly “Travis” or folk style patterns over a 1.6.5 progression in C major. Approach these techniques with slow, patient repetition to develop muscle memory, and you will be able to apply them to countless songs, and your own original music. Let’s get started!

  1. I think you should come to Canada and marry me 💗🕊💗

  2. Wonderful tutorial. Thank you, mister Swift.
    All these folk and blues style lessons are absolutely adorable, but I was wondering if there's any possibility of demonstrating other kinds of guitar playing. For example such artist as Mark Kozelek uses quite interesting fingerstyle, unique at some points and his songs sound magnificent, but alas they are too hard to be learnt without any qualified help. So maybe you would consider such possibility. To help… Us…

  3. Sir can u make a tutorial of wonderful tonight by Eric clapton…….

  4. Great lesson for a beginner at fingerpicking.
