Man! That (the next comment) was uncalled for! Sorry, Bro.

dozerhd says:

Hey, Marty, thanx for another good lesson. You’re really helpin’ me out!

I’ve got a catch phrase for ya ….. “When you get stuck, look Marty up!!” {martyzsongs on YouTube}

You can use it for free. lol

CZ Frame says:

Use your thumb. The alternating thumb pattern is essential. Do it until it’s automatic and you never have to think about it. That way the thumb plays the base automatically, and your other fingers are free to play the melody later on, after you’ve progressed in your playing beyond pattern picking.

Bryan Andreas says:

pattymaboy says:

I’m not marty, but I know getting good at hitting the EAD strings with the thumb and the GBE with the other fingers is extremely beneficial for future, more difficult songs!

Conor Mullan says:

Hi Marty thanks for the tutorial dude your amazing man! you rock. I have one question instead of using my thumb for the d string could i use my index feels more natural or is it better to use my thumb in advanced finger playing styles in the future? many thanks if you could shed some light on this.
