Watch the Let It Ring online guitar lesson by Roberto Dalla Vecchia from Solo Flatpicking Handbook
Whenever we play without anyone providing back up we have to combine the melody with some bass notes and arpeggiated chords. It's crucial to leave our left hand fingers down as long as possible, this way we'll have a richer and full sound. Standard notation and tablature are not really able to give us this piece of information, so always keep this idea in mind. You'll hear me repeating “keep your finger down” over and over again throughout this course, it will be our mantra!
