๐Ÿ’ฌ Description of This Fingerstyle Guitar Lesson

If you're a fingerstyle guitarist (or if you aspire to be one), and if you like noodling around on the guitar in a fingerpicking style, then this lesson is for you.

In this video I share a fingerstyle guitar challenge and break down how to work on it from the ground up.

The idea is simple: Can you improvise melodies while your thumb keeps a steady bass note going?

I like to call this game "Next Level Noodling" because it takes the common habit of just running random scales and helps turn it into real music by adding bass notes, similar to a Travis Picking style, and by keeping everything in time.

When it comes to fingerstyle guitar, this is one of my very favorite things to practice—I play with it almost every day—and it's a fantastic way to train the independent coordination between our thumb and our fingers.

I love the simple but complete fingerstyle sound it creates and I hope you give it a try! :)

I hope you enjoyed this lesson about my fingerstyle guitar improvisation challenge and found it beneficial. Let me know what you thought in the comments.

Thanks! :)
