Awesome Hybrid Picking Patterns Pt. 3 Guitar Lesson

Welcome to Pt.3 of the hybrid picking guitar lesson series. At this point we will begin to take the hybrid picking patterns to a whole new level with the inclusion of the picking hand little finger, 16th note groupings and patterns that go in multiple directions.

The use of the little finger in hybrid picking can be a little tricky in the beginning, but if you continue to practice these patterns and the ones in the following lessons, it will become just as comfortable as the other fingers on your picking hand.

Remember to take it slow in the beginning, making sure that you find a consistent contact point on each finger tip of your picking hand. This will insure a more stable technique in the long run. 😀

Don't forget to download the TAB PDF for this lesson below to make it easier to follow along with the video lesson.

    I have been a finger picker for over 40 years and am just learning to play with pick. Thanks for these hybrid picking lessons. They are helping bridge the space between my finger picking and flatpicking.

    Please, keep these coming… and please show some Chickin’ pickin’ examples (if that is your bag)..

      Cheers!! Carl..
