Day 6 - 10 Day Guitar Starter Course

Hi guys, welcome to Day 6 of this Guitar Starter Course where we'll be checking out how to play fingerstyle guitar! This is where we don't use a pick and is also known as fingerpicking!

The song we're using as an example of fingerstyle is 'Ain't No Sunshine' by Bob Marley!

This really cool easy guitar song uses 3 open minor chords, E minor, A minor and D minor- click the highlighted links if you need more help with any of those chords, or check out the previous lessons in this 10 day course!

Remember - the link to the full chord/ lyrics sheet is under the video and also in the header of this page! Click songbooks to get the full, 100% accurate TAB, chords & lyrics sheet as part of a compilation songbook!
