View Full Version : For songs with melodies and chords

I am learning this:

I was wondering what I should do with my right hand. I strum the chords with my thumb, should I pluck the melody with it, too? I use my fingers to pluck it now and I'm afraid I will lose my skills with finger picking if I use my thumb. help?

Can we haz a vid of how you play it now? I think I get the jisy of what you mean, but......you know

I don't think you'll lose your fingerpicking skills that easily ;) Just try to exercise that skill regularly, and you'll be fine

Whatever works for you. If fingerpicking sounds right, go for it.

There's no right or wrong in this situation, just whatever feels and sounds best :).
