First Day of My Life Guitar Lesson

OK let’s get into the lesson. Personally I play the whole song using just my index finger and thumb because in between the¬†fingerpicking parts there’s a little strumming too and I find this approach helps to get the feel of the song down. This isn’t strict though and if you prefer doing it another way then stick to that.
