Dark Folk Guitar – Melancholy Minor Voicings

Here we explore 4 voicings utilizing a similar shape along with identical open strings.

Practice Tips

  • As a general rule of thumb (sorry about the pun) in fingerstyle guitar, the thumb tends to play the bass strings: 6, 5 and 4, whilst the remaining three right hand fingers take care of strings 3, 2 and 1. This can change, depending on the situation, so don't feel obligated to use this method. In the video, I am using my thumb for the most part, along with the index and middle fingers for support. Experiment a bit until you find what feels best for you. Practice multiple ways, since this will benefit you in different situations, where one way might not work as well as another.
