    Are you referring to the right hand or the left hand?

    I think you're talking about right hand. It's just fingerstyle using four fingers on the plucking hand instead of the "normal" two or one. Usually the finger order is 1-2-3-4 or 4-3-2-1, or whatever. I find that the pinky just doesn't cut it usually, though.
