How to Develop a Right Hand Finger-Picking Technique for Cigar Box Guitar

This is the exercise you'll need to develop a deep blues fingerpicking style on 3-string cigar box guitar. I break it down into a very simple rhythm. Play it at your own pace, but always play it with rhythm! The better you get, the more this will become part of your musicianship.

Don't give up. You'll get it!
