Watch the Accompaniment Patterns online guitar lesson by Muriel Anderson from 1-2-3 Fingerstyle Guitar

You can think of accompanying on fingerstyle guitar as really being a musical partner, adding counter-melodies and fills as well. Use these basic patterns, and then you can embellish by changing the patterns and using some of the fills and licks we will learn later.

After learning some basic fills you can get the idea how to come up with different fills yourself to fit the song you are playing.
