Cycle 01

Given chord progression for this song can nicely be played by simple finger picking style. We will start by playing D major chord. From your fretting hand, form the D major chord. First pluck the 4th (D) string  with your thumb (T). Then play the 3rd string (G) with your index finger (i). Next, 2nd string (B) with your middle finger (m), all plucking on the ¾ beat. Practice this simple pattern until you could play the pattern smoothly.

On next step, plucking will be made as shown in the above diagramme. Cycle 01 is followed by cycle 02. First three plucking is made as in cycle 01. In cycle 02, 1st (e) and 4th strings (D) are played together by ring  finger (r) and thumb (T).Then  pluck the  2nd string (B) by middle finger (m) and finally  3rd string (G) by your index finger (i). Learn to play these two cycles fluently.


Allow each note to ring continuously until next time you pick it

When you move on to another chords ( in this song A A7 Asus G and C) Root note or base note is plucked by your thumb, For example when playing A,G and C chords either 6th or 5th string should be plucked by the thumb.
