To be honest, I learned about the thug fight on the guitar quite recently, when I started preparing this article 🙂 The essence of this fight is that the bass strings change when playing. That is, first we pull one string, then we draw along all the strings, and then we pull the other string – and again we draw along all the strings.

Pull the B string > down with your index finger > pull the other string (not the bass) > down with your index finger.

What is a fight? The fight is a cycle of repetitive movements of the right hand near the sound hole (read: the structure of the guitar). In short, roughly speaking, this is what you do with your right hand on the strings, and more precisely, these are actions when you hit several strings at once.


Fighting should not be confused with guitar picking. Busting is also a cycle of repetitive movements with the right hand, but here we mean fingers. That is, repetitive finger movements. Each string has its own finger. And in combat we use the whole palm, and even squeeze the palm into a fist and other movements.
