Mike Flynn: Four-Finger Picking Lesson

London-based bassist Mike Flynn has mastered the four-finger picking style, and he’s posted a video to demonstrate it for the rest of us.

Mike shares, “I’ve been trying to get it for a while and as I already do the Wooten stuff that involves using two finger pluck with the index and middle fingers on your picking hand – it was quite easy to get the thumb-index-middle pattern happening. I have now switched this over to a four finger picking style – pioneered by Matt Garrison.”
