EXAMPLE12 spread chords

cd track 36

Guitar Techniques - - FINGERPICKING -

This is a ‘spread’ chord us­ing thumb and fin­gers com­bined. Be­gin by plant­ing fin­gers i, m and a on the third, sec­ond and first strings re­spec­tively and the thumb on the sixth string. Next, drag the thumb (rest stroke) across the sixth, fifth and fourth strings; the re­main­ing strings are played free stroke. The sec­ond half of the ex­er­cise uses the same ap­proach as the first but this time the ‘a’ fin­ger plays rest stroke and drags back across all six strings.
