Although a few metal-heads and rock dudes might scoff at the idea of acoustic fingerstyle, it can really bring a new dimension to other genres which make it very much worth the effect to learn the basics. Using a plectrum along with other fingers (AKA Hybrid Picking), your Rock and Metal licks can sound exciting and unique. Besides, it’s an excellent skill for Country and Blues players too. For an example of including other fingers along with your plectrum for Rock licks, click here.
I hope these simple exercises expand your playing!
As always, below you’ll find the YouTube video, and below that, the tablature. Aren’t I nice?!
