Oh Susanna Fingerstyle – Part 1 (FP)






  • SLOW
  • FAST

Here’s a fun way to practice the pinch and alternating bass fingerpicking techniques. In this song we’ll add a melody and chord changes into the mix.

Tip: It’s much easier to break things down into manageable sections. Try to take this chord by chord. Or even measure by measure. Once you’re feeling good, move on to the next section.

This is a great way to learn a fingerstyle song !

Really glad to see fingerstyle songs like this with the bass and melody combined

Go girl!

I think I can get the chords and chord changes but can’t follow the finger style picking. Can you give a better explanation or demo. of the finger picking. For example 6/2 pinch, 5, 4 , 3 , etc.
