Hey guys..
At college we've started a jazz project and i'm only a 2 year old guitarist used to playing with a pick, rock and metal styleee.

I have to learn Canteloupe island in under 2 weeks, at least this riff and the chords which I have on paper, but the main issue right now seems to be.. How the hell do I play this? Bar the 1st fret then move to 3rd while using thumb and fingers to pick.. I'm confused?
I explain badly..

I guess ill see what you say and then I can see easier.

Never finger picked/hybrid picked before..

right here you can get by by using your thumb for the bass notes and your 1st and 2nd finger for the doubles.

you use your index for all bas notes, first bar: use 2nd and 3rd finger for the C and G# then bar the D and A# with pinky. then for the second half of the first bar use same fingers again for the D# and C and then move down index for the last two things... hopw you understand, I dont know how to make myself really clear in this way

I'd suggest either just using a pick (and playing both strings at once), or using thumb for the base notes and pluck with your thumb and index finger for the multi-string notes.

Or you can just do watever feels right. Two weeks is plenty of time to get that down, don't worry yourself too much
