The first lesson of each fingerstyle pattern will introduce a finger picking pattern and have you practice that pattern over a simple 2 chord progression. This will allow you to focus on learning and memorizing the fingerstyle pattern while not having to worry about switching to a lot of different chords.
The second lesson of each fingerstyle pattern will be an original song written specifically for you to continue to master the finger picking pattern you just learned. But this time you will apply the pattern over a song that uses more chords, moves around different strings and the fretboard, and sounds cool. These songs will give you a sense of accomplishment when you master them and will make people turn their heads to listen when they hear you playing them.
