Fingerpicking also referred to as fingerstyle, is one of the many guitar techniques that is incredibly fun to learn. It’s a technique where you pluck the strings directly with the fingertips, as apposed to strumming where you move your fingers in a sweeping action across the strings to play some nice and easy guitar songs in a more rhythmic fashion.
Usually the fingerpicking pattern is also part of the intro of the song which makes the tune easy to recognise.
