Notes (pm)
Here’s why a pick is useless in classical guitar. It will be impossible for the right hand to play 2 or more strings with a pick when the notes are at extreme ends say (High E and Low e). You can accomplish this easily if you lose the pick and free your fingers.

By using your pulgar or thumb(p) and middle(m). You can strike 2 notes at the same time. Take this song slow and make sure you nail the 2 notes simultaneously. Take heed of the back beat note (G) G open string which you play with your index. This piece is in the key of C. Why is the G note so prominent? I know little about music but i can tell you G is in the C chord. What is a C chord? let’s see. C, E and-you guess it-G. The thumb or pulgar (spanish) is responsible for the playing the 3 bass strings (4,5,6) DAE most of the time. The other fingers usually play the treble strings (1,2,3) eBG.
