Learn Fingerstyle Techniques with Part 2 of Cordoba’s “How to Play Fingerstyle Guitar”


SC_Cordoba-LogoYou’re watching PART TWO of Cordoba’s “How to Play Fingerstyle Guitar” technique lesson! Be sure to watch the first part of this series before moving on to this portion of the lesson.

Fingerstyle technique is used in almost every genre and style of music, from timeless classical pieces to today’s top hits. Instead of strumming chords, pluck individual strings to “decorate” the harmony!

In this video, Iren Arutyunyan teaches the basic chords and a few finger-picking patterns to Carnavalito from Suite Del Recuerdo by Jose Luis Merlin. The technique and chord progression you’ll learn in this video is super versatile and can be used in a variety of genres!


Don’t forget that fingerstyle technique sure does look easy, but it will take time to master. We recommend playing along with the video, taking the time to pause, practice, and repeat the different segments. Most importantly, have fun!
