Watch the Right Hand online guitar lesson by Richard Gilewitz from Guitar Foundations

One thing to keep in mind regarding the right hand positioning of the fingers for the fingerstyle guitarist is that there is not necessarily one approach. Sitting positions as well as guitar neck angles while holding the guitar on the left leg (such as many classical players tend to use) should all be considered for your style of play.

I seem to have found that the three base positions seem to offer me a certain amount of a grounding location but I do vary in and out of the basic positions mentioned as needed.
