Bad Habits Guitar Lesson

Although the song itself is very straightforward in terms of chords, it’s the intricate fingerpicking that you may find tricky. I’ve adopted a kind of hybrid picking/strumming technique for most of the tune but if you find this too hard then bear in mind that you can take out the strumming and just fingerpick the melody.
