Sorry if this have been broguht up did a search didn't find anything too concrete. I've been playing for while fingerstyle always using a 1-2 pattern. Tried going to a 3-2-1 pattern last month. Spend at least an hour in front of the tv or what ever a day chugging away and havn't made much progress. I find the middle finger will sometimes miss the string hit the wrong string and I'm still faster and more relaxed using just the 2. Now I know that the a proper technique is obviously going to be slower at first then a bad technique that you are used to but its been a whole month and I han't notices much progress. I don't mind spending the time practicing but I don't wanna work on this for 6 months just to find out it really isn't that big of a deal and I coud have used all that time to work on my fretting hand pinky or learnt more theory something like that. So what do you figure keep up with the 3? or just go back to 2?
