Fingerpicking guitar has always been an essential part of rock, pop, blues, country, folk, jazz and classical music. As Ry Cooder once said, 'We have this incredible, complicated tool: the hand. Why reduce it to a tiny plastic triangle?' This book introduces you to a whole range of fingerpicking styles, with an emphasis on contemporary sounds. It's for beginners or guitarists who already play, but not with their fingers. Includes audio CD demonstrating all the tunes and exercises.
