I ask this question tentatively, because I know next to nothing about the guitar in general, but have picked up classical guitar on the side. Actually, I've always loved classical guitar, and found a neat "teach yourself" book at guitar center while shopping for over-priced violin strings, so I picked up a copy and have been self-teaching.
On top of the classical music that I love, I've recently taken an interest in hymns and church music. I think it would be awesome to be able to figure out the chords for a good hymn and play them using classical guitar-technique. Like, roll them out and stuff. No melody, just, uh... "Fingerstyle?" Is that what it's called? Ahdunno, guitar jargon...
Basically, I like classical guitar, but would like to play chords written out for the acoustic with a classical twist. However that would work.
My point is, given a finger chart for an acoustic guitar, how can I use my fingers to play them out in a way that sounds fundamentally classical guitar. I've tried just choosing two or three strings with pitches that sound nice to cycle through, but I feel like it could be embellished, and if there's another right way to do it, I'd like to do it that way. Are there... "finger patterns" or something that I can practice so that I can just plug them in where it sounds good?
Once again, pardon my guitar illiteracy.
