Fingerpicking Lesson 2
(By Tyson)
 

Alrighty then... you need to go over fingerpicking lesson one before this one so you can know what it's all about.  Umm, I'll teach you some cool fingerings in here so you can mess around with them and then develop more of your own so with no further delay I present fingerpicking lesson 2.

Above is the opening riff from "Lost The Plot" by the Newsboys.

Another great example of cool picking is on the song "Gone" by Kosmos Express and while their not as widely known as the Newsboys they still know how to rock.
