How to Search for Fingerstyle Melodies, Rhythm, and Bass.


I recommend this article for friends who are already fluent in playing and switching chords, and can play 1 or 2 songs using the fingerstyle technique. Because, to find the notes on guitar strings, we must be sensitive to the sound of the guitar notes we play. Alright without much ado, just get to the steps.

  1. Change or Search for Root / Key to C or G. Why C or G? Since Family Chords of this basic tone are rare, no one even uses Bar Chords or Hanging Chords, which will make it difficult for those who are not fluent in hanging chords. Family Chord C = C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am. Family Chord G = G, Am, Bm, C, D, Em.
  2. Memorize the location of the melody on the fretboard. If you use the basic note or Chord of C, then this is the location / scale position do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-si-do or 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-1

  3. if it is a root note or a G chord, then this is the do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-si-do or 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-1 scale position


  4. Looking for Bass. When do we play or pluck the bass strings? the time is the same when we strum the guitar when we play the guitar normally (genjrengan). So Genjrengan Chord, you can replace it with a bass string that goes along with the melody, or you can still play it as usual. Bass quotes on major and minor chords are the same because what determines the chord is major or minor is the tone arrangement formed by the chord itself. So, for example the Chord is E or Em, the bass is the same, that is, the string number 6 loses the string or is released (without being pressed)

  5. Then, for Rhythm you can pluck any strings, as long as your hands form the chord positions on the guitar fretboard.

It's easy isn't it: v hehehe, are you dizzy or not ?. Hopefully you can understand this explanation. That was the article on How to Search for Fingerstyle Melodies, Rhythm, and Bass. Thank you
