Do basic fingerstyle exercises to practice fingerpicking

In this video, we learn how to practice fingerpicking with basic fingerstyle exercises. First, position your fingers so the third is picking the thinnest, the second is picking the second, and the third is picking the third. The thumb should be picking the thickest string on the guitar. Now, start to pick going from your thumb down to the bottom finger. You may have to look at your fingers as you go down, but once you have practiced this, you will get a feel of how to play. When you fingerpick, you can have fake fingernails but they are not required to do well while you are doing this.
