How do I hit multiple notes on the same string? do I use the same right hand finger or what?
#2
Its really quite a hard thing to do with any real speed when fingerpicking.. lemme just get my guitar and see how i do it..

Okay, will i just use the one finger with relative speed, usually my thumb. But i'm not too fast at it, im not sure if anyone is too fast at it.

I usually just make the most of hammer ons and pull offs to get speed.

Ok well not so much speed, but in general. Do I still use my thumb if it's on the three lowest strings?

So for example if I need to play

E ----------- 5 8 7 5
B 7 5 4 7

on a classical what would my right hand do? also how are scales and things meant to be arranged for classical guitar?

I was taught to pluck the three lower strings with my thumb and the top three with my next three fingers. But if your doing a fast run on one string i use my first then second then ring finger and repeat

I do this if a have to involve all 6 strings rapdily, But if it's on two string like TS's example i just used my favourite fingers. I think pretty much everyone has a different Fingerstyle technique.
Nothing is set in stone in fingerstyle IMO

If anything id use my second and first finger and alternate between them, but i think everyone does it differently.

Leave me alone! Stop bloody following me. I think im giving the right advice.
Stop posting just to seem bigger and smarter than me, because trust me it isn't working. I only give advice here if i think i know what i'm talking about. I'm just a beginner whos not trying to look big or clever, which is more than i can say for you.


"Most people I know alterate thumb->index->thumb... etc with the thumb behind your index finger"

Really? Man, i find that really difficult..I'm going to practice.

Thats for more modern or pop songs

If you really wanna be a beast, alternate between index and middle fingers

I do that

I also recommend alternating between index and middle
It takes a bit to get used to, but it's the most efficient
