So I have been trying to play along with old blues records like Robert Johnson, muddy waters, etc. and I realized i don't know how to use my right hand in order to play like them. I know no pick, but am I supposed to be finger plucking, if so which fingers should i be using. Any help would be greatly appreciated since i am new to guitar and this genre.
I can't say for certain as I haven't listened to a whole lot of the blues you mentioned (have heard some Johnson though) but I'm pretty sure they would do a lot of picking with their thumbs and then use the rest of their hand to strum. That's my best guess but I could be talking out my ass :P
