Is it worth spending time learning/creating finger patterns? (What I mean is playing a rhythm using your fingers, and learning a lot of different patterns)

Need more information on this, no idea what you mean at all.

I reckon that they mean certain fingers correspond to certain strings and stuff, depending on the convenience of playing.

He means learning as many different voicings for different types of chords as he can.

And yes, it is highly valuable if not vital to your development as a rhythm player.

I would say yes, but it also depends on your style.

If you like to play solo, without a band, then this is a vital skill, particularly if you're limited as a singer.

It's less so if you play exclusively with a band, particularly if you play punk or metal.

Like what you do in public has anything to do with what you should learn. Learn what you want, if you can use it in a gig then good, if not, well at least you can do it and that's awesome.

Travis picking ^^. I only know the patterns i learnt for songs. Two patterns for Julia by the Beatles, a lot of patterns for Dust in the Wind. A few for Dear Prudence and those are the only travis -style picking songs that i know so...
