Hey all. I've recently become very interested in fingerstyle guitar, and i have a couple songs that i can play decently well, but i don't have a very efficient method of learning the song.

What are some techniques you guys have for learning fingerstyle guitar songs? There are a ton of things to remember and sometimes it just becomes overwhelming and i just put the guitar down and it causes me to take FOREVER just to learn a song.

So have you guys got any good methods or techniques on how to do it??

I need more than "just keep playing it, pussy" and "listen to that song a bunch, it'll just come".


Split it up into sections and play one at a time (starting at a low bpm) until you get the whole song. Or you could work with the chords initially then do fingerpicking.
