More Picking Songs

Daniel January 14, 2021

Introduction:

There are two main types of guitar playing: Picking and Strumming.

Here we will be looking at a range of picking songs, however some students find it much easier to start by learning chords. It doesn’t really matter which aspect you start with, but I usually recommend trying picking first.

Now that you know how to play with proper picking technique (as learnt in Picking Exercise 1), let’s learn a whole bunch of classic riffs and melodies.

Doing this will:

  • Further develop your picking technique and speed
  • Help you learn the fret locations
  • Help train your fingers to hold down the strings properly

Please note: We strongly recommend learning these in the sequential order.
