Fingerpicking for Acoustic Guitar: Fleetwood Mac Inspired Pattern (Landslide)

in Fingerstyle Guitar | 20 comments

In this video lesson I'll be teaching a fingerpicking pattern that is a “must learn” if you want to play Fingerstyle guitar.

This fingerpicking pattern is a variation on the Travis fingerpicking pattern.

It’s commonly used in pop rock music.  Though it’s been used in many songs, fans of classic rock will recognize it for the song “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac (Stevie Nicks).

  12. This is great! I have fallen behind on your lessons as they have seemed to go too fast lately for this old man, but this one was just perfect! I just love the sounds you have enabled me to create on my own guitar.
    Thank you!
