Hand Pain: Common Causes, Signs, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment
When playing fingerstyle, position hand with the rising thumb hand so the fingers are perpendicular to the strings so you can strike the stings easily. To do this, the thumb should be in-front of the fingers closer to the headstock. This hand positioning is very important for several fingerstyle techniques. In this example, the chord is played as an arpeggio. This means that the chord is played one note at a time instead of at the same time. This exercise will help you play some basic finger picking patterns.
