Session 10 - Fingerstyle Guitar

Recommended Posts

Hello, i have a question about canon in D.

The fingering for the left hand is very well explained and i have no problem with that but i find it difficult to follow what Steve is doing with his right hand.

Is it the intention that i do the exact same fingering with the picking hand or is it the intention to find out what works best for me with those fingers?

 grtz

the tab shows me how to play with the left hand but it don't show the left hand fingering. Sometimes steve plays the second or third string with his thumb, sometimes with his index finger... that's where my problem is. it is hard to follow his picking hand. i wanna practice the song correct but i have to know what to do with my picking hand :)

I'm not there yet, but I am very curious about lesson 10, so I looked. On the first page of Session 10 there is a picture of a hand with the Thumb labeled T, the index  1, etc. Below that is a key for finger pattern 1 that shows Thumb - 1st - 2nd- 3rd . Now look down at the first exercise. There is only music notation for the fretting hand. The tab below is for the picking hand. Notice the 0, which equals the thumb. This is a little confusing if one is looking for a T like the picture of the hand or the word Thumb like in the key. It was probably easier for some reason to use a zero.

Hope this helps. Now to get back to session 4 before I start messing around with this stuff.

@pkotof You're slightly mistaken, which will become evident when you watch the video. The very first exercise in Session 10, on page 57 of the lesson book, is played on all open strings. That's what the "0" means in the tab: zero fret = open string. This is standard tablature notation. The right hand pattern to be used is in the respective headings; "Finger Pattern 1, T123 (pima) and so on.

hey, thanks for the reaction but that's not the case :)

The 0 stands for open strings so in the example you made there is nothing to fret with the left hand.

Most of the exercises and the song house  of the rising sun are simple: thumb for the bas and finger 1 "th string finger 2 second string and finger 3 first string... but in the song cannon in D Is that not the case. Steve use his thumb all over the place :)

Thanks Diane,

Now I know too whenever I get there. I went back and looked at the book. That's what I get for looking at one example. Now I have the same question about Canon in D, but I haven't watched the video. So I will get out of heeeeere!

Btw, I never used the tab while playing, so I forgot about the 0 = open string. Thanks.

Ok, been a little while since I looked at Cannon in D

I only have the LMG and Bonus LMG books on my tablet, I don't have the Fingerstyle course on it.

The thumb plays all the bass notes whether its on the 6th,5th or 4th strings.

On line 1, fret a D chord

You would start on string 4, Thumb/4 which is open, then Index on 3rd string, Middle on 2nd string , ring would play first string which fretting hand is playing 2nd fret. 

Same pattern for the entire line.

Thumb, index, middle ,ring

Note that the chord on top, doesn't quite match what you would think the fingering would be, 

Make sure your fretting hand frets what's in the tab lines.

F#m is fret 6th string 3rd fret, 4th string 4th fret and strings 3 and 2 are fretted at 2nd fret 

Now again, thumb on 6, index on 4, middle on 3rd sting, ring on 2nd string.

Pluck thumb, index, middle , ring.

 

Line 2

It's a "diad" , fret a D chord again, 

This time thumb and ring pluck at same time  . Then index plucks 3rd string, middle plucks 2nd sting.

Notice on D chord thumb plays 4th string

On A, Bm thumb plays 5th string

And on F#m and G thumb plays 6th string.

That's what gives you your walking bass line

Last line you have A chord, but fretted 5th and 6th fret with an open A.

That's plucked all at the same time with thumb, index and ring.

Last line creates a "3rds" from the A, Bm, F#m, 

 

Below is a in depth look.. 

the Pictures are from the 1st line 1st measure, 2nd line 1st measure, 2nd line 3rd measure, skipped 3 line and last (4th picture ) is the 4 line 1st and 2nd measures

Picking Hand..  

T=Thumb, I=Index, M=Middle, R=Ring Fingers to use for picking

the Tab Lines at bottom not only show which hands to use for the Chord.. but which sequence to use as the picking hand to pick the strings.

Note.. the Chord Name at the Top doesn't necessarily match what you'd think as a chord in the open 1st position.. it can.. but doesn't have to as found on in the D/F# that needs an open string

String Names are in Red

Fingers to pick with are in Blue

Fretting hand is in black numbers for the fret number on that string

The TAB lines at the bottom is how Steve wanted you to play this score.

The music notation is only part and probably not very helpful as say in the
