The Easiest Fingerstyle/Chord Melody Method For Beginners
The unaccompanied guitar in jazz is often played in chord-melody style, where the guitarist plays a series of chords with the melody line on top. True fingerstyle jazz guitar, without the use of a plectrum, dates back to occasional use by players like Eddie Lang (1902-1933) and Carl Kress (1907-1965), but the style did not really fully develop before the invention of the electric guitar. George van Eps (1913-1998) was revered for his polyphonic solo guitar playing. Ted Greene and Lenny Breau were other masters.

Fingerstyle and chord melody guitar is indeed one of the most creative ways of playing guitar. Once you become familiar with this technique, you should be able to play chords, melodies, percussive guitars, and unique rhythmic patterns.
The main difference between strumming and fingerstyle is that strumming is a very simple guitar technique in which we strum (brush) the strings with the finger or guitar pick up or down. This technique is perfect for beginners who want to play simple chords and songs.
With fingerstyle guitar, you will pluck the strings with the right-hand fingertips so the beginning could be more challenging than strumming as we have to decide which string to pluck.
