Basic Fingerpicking -- Pattern 2

Pattern #2 is very similar to pattern #1 in that the same strings are played; however, this time the measure is broken down into eighth notes, so between each bass note (on the count of 1 and 3) you will be playing three notes instead of 1. This pattern is pictured below, and if you have practiced pattern #1 this one should not be too difficult. Click here to listen to Red River Valley with this pattern.
