Horn - Nick Drake cover

A cover of the track “Horn” by Nick Drake. He used lots of odd tunings + finger picking patterns so his style has always seemed unobtainable to me (I never finger pick lol) but I’ve decided to do my best to learn from what he left behind 😄 Only just learned it today. Sorry for metronome vol!
Sounds really good ! good job James, a little tip i can give you is when you finger pick use two fingers ( your index and middle fingers) and alternate betwen those two like if you were alternate picking haha
Thank you so much brother! Finger picking is something I’ve never done before and it’s a pretty tough thing to start learning tbh haha so I’ll gladly take any advice I can get 😄🙏🏼

Great job for sure... your cat did not run in terror so good job on that lol To add one more thing to what Ezequiel said, I would try to get used to picking without your ring and middle finger staying in contact with the guitar. If you do what he says, it will happen naturally anyway I suppose.

Thank you good sir! This is really the first song time that I’ve really wanted to learn finger picking (I’ve always played more riff driven stuff, the stones, T. rex, slipknot, 60s and 70s classic rock) so I’m excited to give this a go
