Fingerstyle Patterns using Hammers & Flicks (Folk Guitar Lesson FO-109)

  • 0:05 - 0:07
    Hi, how'ya doing, Justin here!
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    Welcome to this last lesson in the
    Folk Fingerstyle Module,
  • 0:10 - 0:15
    where we're gonna be learning how to add
    hammer-ons and flick-offs into our patterns.
  • 0:15 - 0:19
    Now, this is quite tricky. The first time
    I learned it, I really struggled with it,
  • 0:19 - 0:24
    so, expect it to take a little bit of time
    to learn, but if you are going to continue
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    your path into folk fingerstyle, and you're
    gonna learn some James Taylor, or
  • 0:27 - 0:32
    Tommy Emmanuel, Andy Mckee, any of those
    kinda complex guys, you're gonna need to
  • 0:32 - 0:37
    learn this technique. It's gonna take some
    practice. What I'm gonna do in this lesson,
  • 0:37 - 0:42
    I've written out four patterns, which use
    some of the common kind of ideas and
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    I'm gonna take you through each one and
    explain what's going on. So, when you
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    come across them in the real world, you'll
    understand how to go about practicing them
  • 0:49 - 0:54
    and the difficulties that you might face.
    It's a lot of fun and you don't wanna
  • 0:54 - 0:58
    always have to pick every note that you're
    gonna play. So, using hammer-ons and
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    flick-offs is very-very common. So, what
    we're gonna do is we're gonna have look
  • 1:02 - 1:06
    at the right hand and then the left hand
    (the fretting hand and then the picking hand)
  • 1:06 - 1:11
    for each one of the patterns and hopefully
    you'll get it, you'll sort them out and
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    you'll be able to incorporate these into
    your playing as well and of course,
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    remember, that once you've learned this,
    you might wanna think back to when you
  • 1:17 - 1:21
    made up your own patterns, and maybe
    make up some of your own patterns that
  • 1:21 - 1:24
    also use these hammer-ons
    and flick-offs too.
  • 1:24 - 1:27
    So, let's get to a close-up and
    check out pattern 17.
  • 1:27 - 1:34
  • 1:34 - 1:38
    OK, that's the first pattern. Now, what
    what we've starting-off here is with our
  • 1:38 - 1:44
    little finger on the 3rd fret
    of the 2nd string. (♪)
  • 1:44 - 1:49
    And it's flicking-off onto the
    1st fret of the 2nd string.
  • 1:49 - 1:52
  • 1:52 - 1:57
    Now, the trick here is, that it has to
    flick-off exactly at the end.
  • 1:57 - 2:06
    1-and-2; and then we're playing
    with the thumb. So, 1-and-2-and-3
  • 2:06 - 2:10
    Now this one, the part on beat 3,
    we've just played the open 2nd string,
  • 2:10 - 2:16
    lifting our 1st finger off, and we
    hammer it down at exactly the same time as
  • 2:16 - 2:24
    our thumb plays on the 3rd beat.
    So: 1, and, 2, and, 3
  • 2:24 - 2:26
    And we're not playing that one.
    Make sure you recognize it,
  • 2:26 - 2:34
    that's a hammer-on.
    1, and, 2, and, 3, and, 4
  • 2:34 - 2:38
    And now here: and-4
    So you're flicking this off,
  • 2:38 - 2:41
    little finger's flicking off,
    at exactly the same time
  • 2:41 - 2:47
    the thumb is playing the 4th string (♪)
  • 2:47 - 2:49
    Which feels really weird
    when you start-off with;
  • 2:49 - 2:51
    this stuff's gonna feel awkward, you know.
  • 2:51 - 2:54
    but just do it like this slowly.
    Really slowly.
  • 2:54 - 3:12
    1-and-2-and-3-and-4
    1-and-2-and-3-and-4
  • 3:12 - 3:14
    That's how you're gonna have to do it.
    Just real slow
  • 3:14 - 3:24
  • 3:36 - 3:40
    Ok, I want you to see clearly now,
    how little this hand is doing
  • 3:40 - 3:44
    for that seemingly quite complicated
    pattern. Thumb and 2nd finger together,
  • 3:45 - 3:53
    flick-off, thumb, 2nd finger, thumb,
    3rd finger, thumb; and that's it!
  • 3:53 - 3:54
    So: ♪
  • 4:11 - 4:16
    It's really part of the trick here
    is getting the...resisting the urge
  • 4:16 - 4:18
    to go: ♪
  • 4:19 - 4:22
    because your fingers gonna
    naturally wanna play it.
  • 4:23 - 4:23
    Flick.
  • 4:26 - 4:28
    And here: just the thumb.
  • 4:30 - 4:34
    And hammering the 1st finger down.
  • 4:34 - 4:56
  • 4:56 - 4:58
    Ok, we've got a few interesting things
    going on here:
  • 4:58 - 5:00
  • 5:00 - 5:02
    Playing the thumb and the 2nd finger,
    we're now on the G chord of course,
  • 5:02 - 5:07
    we've moved from C to G;
    flicking-off little finger to 1st finger
  • 5:09 - 5:11
    Thumb, playing the open
  • 5:13 - 5:15
    Now we've got thumb and
    2nd, or 1st finger-doesn't really matter
  • 5:17 - 5:20
    Flick-off, then: ♪
  • 5:20 - 5:23
    We've got little finger going down,
    so we're changing the bass note
  • 5:23 - 5:29
    instead of ♪
    we're now going 1-and-2-3-4
  • 5:29 - 5:31
    We're adding this F note in there.
    It makes it like a G7
  • 5:31 - 5:36
  • 5:36 - 5:40
    So, it'll be thumb, playing that note
    there, the F, 3rd fret of the 4th string,
  • 5:40 - 5:53
  • 5:53 - 5:55
    It's just a really cool little pattern
    I want you to see the idea, that
  • 5:55 - 5:57
    sometimes the bass notes can change.
  • 5:57 - 6:02
    As well as incorporating your flick-offs
    and hammer-ons as well.
  • 6:02 - 6:07
  • 6:07 - 6:09
    Ok, let's check-out the picking hand.
  • 6:10 - 6:15
    Ok, so we're starting here with our
    2nd finger, and the bass note being played
  • 6:15 - 6:24
    flicking-off, thumb, 2nd finger, thumb
    and 1st finger, flick-off, thumb, 1st
  • 6:24 - 6:55
  • 6:55 - 6:58
    OK, this is pattern 19.
    This is a fun one, because we're
  • 6:58 - 7:04
    now using our travis picking;
    5th string, 4th string, 6th string, 4th string,
  • 7:04 - 7:09
    So, on our C: ♪
  • 7:09 - 7:12
    When we're doing it in open position,
    make sure, use your 3rd finger to move over.
  • 7:12 - 7:13
    Don't: ♪
  • 7:14 - 7:17
    Of course there's enough fingers to
    hold all of the strings down, but then
  • 7:17 - 7:20
  • 7:20 - 7:21
    It all just flows together.
  • 7:22 - 7:25
    You want that kind of definition that
    moving the finger gives you.
  • 7:27 - 7:29
    And we're adding in the
    hammer-ons and flick-offs.
  • 7:29 - 7:35
  • 7:35 - 7:39
    So, here hammer your little finger
    in the 2nd string 3rd fret
  • 7:39 - 7:41
  • 7:41 - 7:47
    Bass, open, bass, 3rd finger playing
    the 3rd fret of the thinnest string
  • 7:47 - 7:53
    and then that's gonna flick-off at exactly
    the same time as you pluck the 4th string.
  • 7:53 - 7:55
    That was really hard to do slow,
    but anyway:)
  • 7:55 - 8:14
  • 8:14 - 8:16
    Thumb and 2nd finger start-off here.
  • 8:17 - 8:21
    With a hammer-on, thumb, 3rd finger,
  • 8:21 - 8:29
    thumb on the thickest string, 3rd finger
    playing the thinnest string and then the flick-off
  • 8:29 - 8:31
    happening at exactly the same time
    as the thumb-
  • 8:31 - 8:46
  • 8:46 - 8:50
    Really think when you've got the flick-off
    try and connect the moving of your thumb
  • 8:52 - 8:57
    with the flick-off; so it's almost like
    it becomes one movement.
  • 8:57 - 8:58
  • 8:58 - 8:59
    'Cause thumb's just playing that one note.
  • 9:00 - 9:02
    But you have to connect
    the thumb with that
  • 9:02 - 9:04
    flick-off movement,
    'cause if the flick-off comes
  • 9:04 - 9:07
    too early, or too late,
    it'll just sound wrong.
  • 9:07 - 9:08
    Ok, and pattern number 20
  • 9:08 - 9:17
  • 9:17 - 9:20
    We've got here we're on G;
  • 9:20 - 9:24
    Pick, flick-off the 1st finger from
    the 1st fret to the open
  • 9:24 - 9:26
  • 9:26 - 9:31
    then 1st finger, open, 2nd finger, open.
  • 9:31 - 9:47
  • 9:47 - 9:48
    Works nice kind of to see that one.
  • 9:48 - 9:52
  • 9:52 - 9:53
    Let's look at the picking hand.
  • 9:54 - 10:00
  • 10:00 - 10:06
    Starting with thumb on the thickest string,-
    we're on a G chord of course,- 3rd finger,
  • 10:06 - 10:13
    playing the thinnest string, flick-off,
    thumb, 2nd finger, then thumb and 2nd,
  • 10:13 - 10:17
    flick-off, thumb and 1st, flick-off.
  • 10:17 - 10:36
  • 10:36 - 10:39
    Incorporating your hammer-ons and
    flick-offs into your fingerstyle patterns
  • 10:39 - 10:43
    is most likely gonna be difficult and require
    quite a few hours of practice.
  • 10:43 - 10:45
    I do think it's worth it
    and you'll find that
  • 10:45 - 10:49
    all of the great fingerpickers
    use this technique.
  • 10:49 - 10:53
    The thing that you probably wanna do now
    is go back and try and make up some of
  • 10:53 - 10:58
    your own patterns that use it. That's
    probably the best way to go about it now.
  • 10:58 - 11:01
    Either that, or have a go at learning some
    James Taylor, or Tommy Emmanuel, or
  • 11:01 - 11:03
    one of the great fingerpickers;.
  • 11:03 - 11:06
    Chet Atkins maybe,
    or Merle Travis and see,
  • 11:06 - 11:10
    if you can actually work out their tunes
    and see the way they're using it
  • 11:10 - 11:14
    and putting it into practice. Those that've
    bought the DVD version of this series
  • 11:14 - 11:18
    will have the bonus material, where
    I'm gonna do some actual songs
  • 11:18 - 11:21
    and incorporate all of the ideas that
    we've done in this course, so
  • 11:21 - 11:25
    some of you are probably gonna be
    checking that out now, which is good for me
  • 11:25 - 11:30
    and good for you, buying the DVD really
    helps support all of the free stuff, so
  • 11:30 - 11:33
    if you've enjoyed this, you wanna
    check out the bonus material and
  • 11:33 - 11:38
    go and pick up the DVD off the website and
    check out the extras, I'm sure you'll dig'em.
  • 11:38 - 11:40
    Hope you've enjoyed the course,
    take care of yourselves and
  • 11:40 - 11:45
    I'll see you for much more guitar lessons,
    licks, riffs, tricks, songs and all that stuff
  • 11:45 - 11:50
    I can't speak now, my mouth has gone dry
    I've been doing all that,-I've actually done
  • 11:50 - 11:54
    nearly all of these lessons in
    one run-through,- and just a funny little
  • 11:54 - 11:59
    insider thing, doing this last little intro
    has taken about 5000 gazillion takes,
  • 11:59 - 12:04
    which I find funny, 'cause most of the
    rest of it's been plain sailing, like 1, or 2 goes
  • 12:04 - 12:07
    on all of these and they've just
    sailed through.
  • 12:07 - 12:10
    Ridiculous how life works sometomes
    anyway. Take care of yourselves,
  • 12:10 - 12:15
    have a lovely time with these fingerstyle patterns
    and I'll see you for much more very soon.
  • 12:15 - 12:16
    Take care, bye-bye!
