When you first start FingerpickPro you have two broad options.
The first are three instruments laid out and playable like a piano. These are:
This approach using a keyboard layout will probably be more familiar, since most virtual instruments, including guitars, use this approach. These instruments are explained in detail on the pages linked above.
The second option, and the main reason for FingerpickPro, are 12 Key Instruments where the virtual keyboard uses a chord-based layout where you choose chords by selecting keyswitches, and the notes of the chord are mapped to keys representing the six strings of a guitar.
- The 12 Key Instruments are C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A# and B.
Since the Key Instruments have the least familiar layout, they are explained in greater detail in the following sections:
- The Keyboard Layout
- The Chords
- The String Keys
- Hammer-Ons and Pull-Offs
- The Auto-Bass Keys
- Muted Notes and Harmonics
- Finger Strums
- Sundry Sounds
