    The alternating bass style of fingerpicking is so appealing to me, but so hard for me to play. I’ve been playing for 17 years not like that. Is there any hope for me? It completely fries my brain. I’m going to keep trying your exercises. I guess I’m going to have to buy a thumb pick too even though I hate them, because it’s impossible for me to mute the strings and pick with my fingers correctly. Thanks for the great web site.
