Hey, how’s it going this is Jon McLennan with Guitar Control, I want to give you a guitar lesson today this is the little finger style 101 with Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide”. It’s a beautiful song and it’s an amazing guitar part we’ve got a capo on the 3rd fret.
Click on the Tabs button to follow the chords and tabs.
I’m going to begin on a C chord 3, 2, 0, 1, 0, then I’m going to walk down to a G over B, and the way that I play that is second finger on the 2nd fret 5th string open 3rd fret with the pinky on the 2nd string I just play those inner four strings. I’ve go from a C like this to a G over B it’s important that you use your second finger and pinky don’t go like this with your first and third then I move down to an A minor 7, it’s like a C chord you just remove your third finger pretty sweet then back up to a G over B.
So you might want to start by practicing these grips and do it with the recording go one to two beats on each chords 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4. Now I’m just playing this without a pick, right now you can do it with the pick and play hybrid style but I like kind of the warm sound of using my fingers. So what’s going on here is I’m going thumb, index, thumb, middle, and then thumb, index, thumb, one E and two E and the three. So I really just use three fingers here of the right hand and I keep that pattern consistent and then move it through the cords it is really slow one okay well be sure to take it slow and make sure that you’re doing that finger-picking pattern in the right order that’s very important go slow and get the fingers right copy just with just what I was doing.
