    The store clerk’s real name is Richard Carr. I went to school in Garden Grove, CA with his son, Keith Carr, and we were both in the band at Santiago High. He was a bit younger than I was, but we also played guitar. As I found out later, most of the clarinet players also played guitar. It really helped because it gave us a better musical foundation. We knew chords and could answer questions the teacher would ask. Because by just playing a clarinet, you wouldn’t know a thing about chords at all. Only by playing an instrument that used chords could you learn anything about chords, unless you have some sort of major photogenic memory going on, where you could instantly memorize a chord from a sheet of music. Good luck with that. But, once you learn a chord on guitar, you can think of all the notes in the chord and that’s no problem at all. Anyway, I’d go over to Keith’s house to play guitar and watch his dad play his guitar and we’d all have fun together. I introduced Keith to my other guitar playing friend and mentor, Glen Watkins. Both Keith and Glen loved playing lead and I wondered who of them would eventually play bass. We never got that far. Keith was a naturally gifted lead guitar player and I never got to see where he took that, if anywhere. He was really good. He would always amaze me. I was the “rhythm” guitar player. In other words, I couldn’t play lead if they paid me. Now, I can finger-pick like a bad-boy, but that still isn’t playing lead. You really have to know your guitar to play lead. But, I am proud of the way I finger-pick. Really fast, convoluted and professional. I love it.

      Here’s the finger-picking pattern I use. Not that difficult at all. All you have to do is practice it for 6 months. Sounds like a long time, but actually, you will use it for the rest of your life…years. So, in that context, 6 months is a very short time. Here’s the pattern:
      T6 -3 -T4 -1- T5 – 2 – T4 -1. Now, T= means, using the Thumb to hit the numbered string. The number alone, means to hit that particular string, ie. the third string (3). Which you would do with your first finger! But, I am only telling you which String to pluck.
      This pattern would only be for Chords that have their root Bass note on the 6th string. Now, that would be the Chords E, Em, F, Fm, G, Gm, a Barred A, etc. Chords that have their root Bass note on the 5th fret, the pattern changes, but very slightly.
      You have to pluck the root Bass string first. So the pattern begins on the 5th string. So the bass pattern would be T5-T4-T6-T4, with the treble strings doing the same basic pattern.
      Now, lets say you want to play the basic D chord on the bottom three strings. where the D string, 4th is the root Bass note. Then, the Bass pattern is T4-T3-T5-T3, with treble strings doing their thing. You would also be only using two fingers.
      Now, you would know exactly what to do, IF you really know the First finger pattern without any question. If you don’t, you won’t know what to do and will be lost, so make sure you know the 1st pattern without every thinking about it. That is without question the most important thing. Do not get ahead of yourself. When I say devote yourself to the pattern for 6 months, I mean it. It will take that long for it to go into your long term memory. So, you won’t have to think about what you are doing when you play it. That is very important. Because, later on, you will want to be able to play the pattern and on top of the pattern, you will want to play melody and if you can’t play the pattern cold, without thinking about it, you won’t be able to play melody on top of it. And, then you might want to sing on top of that and you can’t be thinking about your guitar and singing because you won’t be able to keep it together. So make sure you have the guitar pattern down in your mind.
