KateG Help with fingerpicking melodies (50) RE: Help with fingerpicking melodies 22 Jun 05

Try playing the melody on the bass strings. I do House of the Rising Sun in Em and Dona, Dona in Am that way, using my thumb to pick out the melody and filling in stray notes with my 1st and 2nd fingers in a T-1-T-2 pattern. You can play the melody for leads and breaks, and go back to mindless pattern picking while singing.
