In this lesson Jarvis shows us how to play a piece called "Robin", which was inspired by a certain popular fingerstyle song from the 60s. This piece has a steady and even bass line with a little bit of syncopation in the melody, which makes for a challenging (but with practice, achievable) introduction to fingerstyle guitar playing. The fretting hand work is fairly simple, which allows us to focus on the picking hand techniques.
- Learn to control your picking hand, using your thumb and fingers separately
- Focus on the syncopation in the melody - this can be tricky!
- Learn to play the full piece
