Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…

Q: I really like electric guitar finger picking technique. When I hear it done by guys like Chet Atkins and Larry Carlton it sounds really smooth. Unfortunately, I can’t find very much online about this approach. Do you have any suggestions for me on how to get into developing this technique?
Benjamin — UK.

A: The technique of playing finger picking style on an electric guitar is not all that much different from playing it on an acoustic. The main difference is that electric guitars generally have lighter gauge strings than acoustics, so it takes a far lighter touch when finger picking on the electric guitars. Because I finger-pick quite often on my electrics, I use gauge .011 – .049 strings on most of my electric guitars. In the video, I’ll be covering several ideas that I like to use when composing these types of finger picking parts on electric guitar.
