#10 of Top 10 Picking Patterns to Learn on Acoustic Guitar (VIDEO)

This is the Tenth and Final Picking Pattern in the Top 10 Picking Patterns to learn as Beginner on Acoustic Guitar.

This is a plucking picking pattern which means you pick all the strings together at once and then you let it ring for a second. Then you place your fingers back on the string where they will be playing the notes and you pluck again. This second portion happens on the down beat of the 2 with the ‘snap’ and then the plucking again on the & of the 2 beat. Then we let it ring out until the 1 down beat on the next measure!

The (123) is optional and as you’ll see from the video the core pattern is in the plucking and snapping. But if you decided to add this portion, you are picking the 1, 2, and 3 strings starting on the & of the 3rd beat, plucking three eighth notes in a row. So, you would play the & 4 & at the end of the measure before plucking the down beat again.
