Watch the Finger & Thumb Style online guitar lesson by Mike Zito from Blues Americana

The sound of skin on the strings brings out so much tone. From Wes Montgomery style thumb picking to Albert Collins to the Carter Family, I have tried to learn all of these styles of finger and thumb picking. I can use my thumb and forefinger as a pick for strumming and rhythm, and the claw of thumb and first two fingers for single note picking.
