There is no wrong way to play the pattern, within the chord.
The joy of learning Landslide is that there are many different finger style patterns that fit the basic feel of the song. Experimenting with what feels and sounds good to you is part of the fun of playing.
Although I try to be consistent, I do occasionally change the picking pattern to suit my vocals. The song is amazing, as I never get tired of playing or singing it. I started to play Landslide , which David knows is a standard for me, and he surprised me by playing the most beautiful counterpoint to my now standard picking pattern.
I was thrilled at how wonderful the song sounded with the second guitar. My own guitar playing has been a matter of two philosophies — keep things simple and try to bring a different voice to the proceedings.
This was best accomplished by mimicking her pattern but overlaying it with higher voicings. In essence, it sounds like someone is playing an impossible-to-finger chord pattern on one guitar.
Old Town Road. Tab to this arrangement is included as well. Buckingham rocks out with the raw spirit of a freewheeling garage band, while Fleetwood cuts loose on the drums. Every time those words would come out onstage, I wanted to go over and kill him. Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has long been recognized for his incredible fingerstyle guitar technique and his work in "Landslide" is no exception. Rolling Stone.
Here I use my thumb and middle finger to pluck the opening notes while my index finger plays the B string on the offbeat and my thumb plays the G string on the second and fourth beats. Since Laura played her bass note only on the first beat, I also threw in an additional one again with the thumb while the middle finger plays the high note on the third beat.
On the first G chord I use the open D string as the bass note on first beat while Laura played the B note on the A string and then the G note on the low E for the third beat. The Am chord becomes a half-barre chord on the fifth fret I usually use my ring finger for this. I also used an alternating bass line on this measure, playing the open low E on the third beat.
Since, for the most part, there were no vocals during the last measure I threw in a little fill to add some movement to the music. The open G string serves as a pedal point to keep the illusion of the single guitar going. From time to time, depending solely on my mood, I would vary this last measure slightly by breaking up the rhythm of the descending notes like this:.
On this last measure, the initial stretch might be a little much, but since it is high up on the neck with the capo on the fourth fret, this is actually played on the seventh and eleventh frets it is not as difficult as you might think. Thanks to one of our faithful readers for suggesting this song as a topic.
I hope you enjoy this song as David and I have, both individually and as a duet. Have fun with it!

This column continues in a series dedicated to the female musician. Hold down each chord shape for two beats, letting it all ring throughout, while picking the notes on strings 5 and 4 with your thumb, and those on the higher strings with your index and middle fingers. Note that the straightth-note rhythmic action is disrupted by an eighth note on the and of beats 2 and 4 in each measure, so take care not to rush those spots.
Once you can play the intro cleanly, commit it to memory, as it also forms the bulk of the verse. The chorus is a little trickier to play than the intro and verse.
This new section introduces simultaneously picked notes on the treble and bass strings, embellished with hammer-ons and pull-offs.
