Why Fingerpicking is Important
Many beginners find that fingerpicking is easier to learn. Why? Because, from a young age, we have been using each finger independently of each other to do almost everything. This makes learning a complex instrument, like the guitar, easier since you do not have to also learn to properly hold the pick. In addition to this, fingerpicking creates a different sound style than picking. It allows for more freedom, as well as the ability to simultaneously create various melodies and harmonies. This allows you to vary the style of music you want to play too.
