Ex­am­ple Lind­sey Buck­ing­ham style

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Acoustic -

[Bar 27] A dif­fer­ent feel here, as we arpeg­giate a C ma­jor chord in the open po­si­tion. You can use the ‘p i m’ ap­proach, us­ing the thumb for the fifth and fourth strings while the first and sec­ond take care of third and sec­ond strings. Al­ter­na­tively, you can try the tra­di­tional ‘p i m a’ pat­tern which would see the thumb, first, sec­ond and third fin­gers pluck the fifth, fourth, third and sec­ond re­spec­tively – it’s hard at this tempo, though. [Bar 28] Th­ese fast strummed chords are another fea­ture of Lind­sey’s style, and almost hint at a fla­menco in­flu­ence. I’d pluck the open fourth string with the pick­ing-hand thumb, then use a rapid al­ter­nat­ing down and up­stroke with the first fin­ger to strum the chord.
