When we pick through chords, (using a plectrum), applying a unique picking pattern, we have the opportunity for creating some really cool sounding guitar parts. The lines that can be invented are somewhat similar sounding to a finger-style guitar part. But, the attacks have more punch and greater definition.
Chord picking patterns are strong and can hold their own when it comes to combined harmony and melody concepts. In the lesson video, I cover several examples to help get you started. But, what is most important is to work on inventing a good amount of your own original patterns. Over time, they will become a big part of your everyday playing technique. Enjoy the lesson!
