haha damm I thought that was my phone I heard at the beginning, then I remembered I've only ever heard that sound from my old Nokia 3310
Wowww amazing!!!!I love that kind of FingerPicking style...Sound like Country!! I love that,hope you teach more easy FingerPicking styles like that!Appreciate it!!!
i like how you simplify it & slow it down as opposed to dumbing it down like other YouTube lessons.
I have an alt. Picking ng pattern for d major. You use the d g b and e strings. The first string is d, then b then g then e. Once you play those notes ending the last note which is e 4 times through, you take your ring finger off and play the 1st and 2nd finger. You then replace your ring finger and play without your first finger and only play the middle and ring fingers.. Ending 4 times through on top e. Then you put your first finger back on the string and play without the second string, then you play all the fingers together again, coming full circle. You can use this to teach your students. Have a good 1!
This is fantastic! Thank you!
Oh My God Marty!!! YES!!! I thought picking was impossible but the noises coming out of my guitar match yours perfectly now. Thanks man!!! ^_^
Would it be considered left wrong if I put down my guitar after only playing each note on tempo separately and not together?
This is absolutely fantastic! I can't wait to make beautiful music with this:)
Dude this is awesome. I might actually be able to learn "Dust In The Wind" before I die. LMAO
Thanks Marty. You have started me on the art of finger picking. Appreciate your lesson.
Is the bar code F Useful? Please awnser
I'm certainly not sure
but, no it is
yes it isnt
guess I have just been picking a certain way for 50 years now,,,,
its just a little to fast
what if I don't know ANYTHING about guitar lessons, and I don't know those things he said in the beginning... I need a proper lesson for level 0. RAH!
Not sure if it's available on android, but on iOS, he has an app with tons of lessons.
Check it out "Guitarjamz"
It's what I'm doing right now, and so far I'm picking it up well
Thanks a lot Marty :) excellent exercise!!!
Thank you thank you thank you
you made me happy. Thank you.
This does help a lot! I will be practicing very slowly...Excellent Lesson!!
who needs slow when you have steriods
this really helps me!! thanks!
yeah...never mind explaining the rhythm because it`s easy beginners...
helps with the song "marry me" by train
You're the best!
the best lesson on finger picking i have viewed so far. Thanks :)
Great tutorial video thanx so much
haha i love the intro XD
Thanks! Helps a lot!
isnt that dust in the wind by kansas?
Thank you ...... Keep it up..!! I learn more from you than anyone I have searched...& that is a lot .. Great instruction . I play piano, my first love, but it has to be in a storage awhile.. So.. What is available is a friends guitar..!! Love it.. But learning a new instrument is a joy as well as a great challenge . So, I want you to know Your instruction is very appreciated.. Bless you & your family..!!!
when i use left hand for chords, those string sound mute while fingerpicking!!! pleaseeeeee help!!!!
Sonali I see your comment here was almost a year ago, how are you coming along with your playing? I just started about a month ago using Marty's videos...so far, I'm enjoying the process.
Press down harder on the strings 😊
You are getting ahead of yourself. Practice your chords.
the strings should be in contact with the neck. (up against the neck) when you make chords
You really are an excellent teacher, Marty!! Love your vids! Thanks so very much :)
awesome vid :)
dude... the intro.... thats my life :0000
Looks like as good a place to start as I've seen so far, thanks Marty. Wish I hadn't waited so long to learn how to do this, just stubborn I guess. A ton of others have done it, and I don't consider myself mentally handicapped - it's more like Charles Barkley and golf lol.
hi marty, thanks for the help, picked it up in 10 minutes or less, very good tutorial.
thanks so much :)
+SuperXYZER sshhhhhhh! tell no one!
you look like voldemort
Cheers Pal! I've been putting my old guitar down for years but now I've started picking I'm on a mission!!! Peace! Danny P England!
ohh I'm Sweaty!
SLOWER!!!! please change the angle of the camera so we can see which finger your using as your third finger looks like its playing a string, confusing!
I had the same problem I realised he is holding down a third string
we'll be back too best guitar lessons i have i have found on here yet
Best instructional video opening EVER! Long live the spouse! Excellent lesson, too.
get a shirt on dude
How do we do the F chord?
I've just learned to play the basic chords on the guitar (I've been playing guitar for about 2 months now) is it too early to start to learn finger picking?
Awesome lesson! I just have problems incorporating the fingers into the different things each finger is doing.I.m just so use to using my pick.I;ll keep trying.Thanks.
eddie vedder - tuolumne
one of your best lessons!!! thx marty
thank you very much for the simple encouraging lesson!
HOLY CRAP i am a beginner I know so little and this amazing video is so amazing i FEEL better already! really you could not have said that any better!
The lesson is GREAT ! thank you!
its so hard to learn the fingerstyle ughh !!
Often, the strings are closer together on an electric than on a acoustic, so maybe that has something to do with it.
Fretting a G shape: pinch strings 6 and 1, then pluck, 4, 3, 6, 1, 4, 3.
Fretting a C shape: pinch strings 5 and 2, then pluck these strings in order: 4, 3, 5, 2, 4, 3. Count is 1, 2 and, 3 and, 4 and. Repeat, starting with the 5/2 pinch.
i am trying but i have a tele copy and finding its difficult.i know i know picking aint easy but is it harder on a electric or am i just a total loser?
I can´t but still practise :D
Super...I started doing it in few minutes. Earlier when I saw people doing it, I thought that it will take years to catch that. Thanks!
Marty is that a steel string guitar? I assume it is but please confirm!!
YOU FINGER THE G LIKE ME
You are a dumbass idrek.
you are such a bitch
whats the whole pattern (in order)
me too :D
Man, Marty, you have a really cool name.
25 people gave up trying to be as fast as Marty ;)
Hi! Any great song for this pattern? I really loved it and I'm still learning so it might me great to practice it with a real song. This is great, Marty.
thank you so much
I can't get THAT fast finger-picking!! But I'm trying everyday! Thanks Marty!
Literally one of the best guitar teachers on YouTube, you are an absolute saviour! Please never stop making videos :)
Good tutorial, I agree with Fkira Last. I felt a little like I was playing Simon, though.
Marty...YOU ROCK!! Thanks to you, I now play better than my brother, and my Dad is giving me his Fender Strat!! :) :) :) don't feel bad for my brother, he gets a nice guitar too...BUT, I hope you don't mind if I DONT tell him about you...at least for a while!! ;) Thank you so much, you have taken me BEYOND what I thought I could do! <3 <3
who is that pretty lady in the back?
I was able to follow up until 5:20 then he just completely changes the rhythm and or pattern to something else and doesn't say a word about what he's done.
HOW DO YOU PLAY THIS?????????????
Very very annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, when I play songs that use Finger-picking (I'm more of a Pick user) I can only use my Thumb and Index finger because it feels comfortable. But when I try and use my other three fingers (Middle, Ring, Pinkie) it just feels awkward and uncomfortable and it stuffs me up. Any excercises to help me with that problem?
Who else heard the weird Internet buzz thing at the start?
Also, the start kinda heard like Tobuscus 'SAD SONG'
Or mostly known as Dust in the Wind
I love moments like that when my wife interrupts me practicing. It's those moments in life that remind me why I'm taking the time to learn this instrument in the first place - for her and my daughter.
Is it standard tuning?
Is this the picking pattern for Just Breathe by Pearl Jam?
An excellent job Marty. Thanks for that. I'm rockin'.
This sounds like glory on a classical guitar. I'm really happy about mine.
Thx Marty, you are the Guitar teaching god of the Web
This is a good lesson on Travis Picking except when Marty slows down he hits the pattern out of sequence a few times and never completes the full sequence properly. But you can make sense of it using your ears and weeding out the mistakes.
My beginners-fingers hurt like crap too indeed :D
Every time I see a Marty video when I search for a lesson I thank the holy mother of music because it actually makes sense. Hallelujah. Amen.
muy buen tutoria .....Gracias
Thanks man. Great instruction as always
Great job of demonstrating
Fuck you Claudi, why u no respect this man
hey marty. can you please help learn alicia keys that's when i knew song?
deal with it
You ARE the Man!
