          Great for beginners to learn and practice finger picking
          Shame there is no melody line for singers or solo guitar to follow

          Musicroom Reviews

          I'm not a great finger-picker, but found this book helped me along without the need for a lot of instruction (although each song does have an intro with guidance on how to play). Although a few songs weren't my cup of tea, I found that songs that normally grate on me (Adele in particular) became satisfying to play, as you can ignore the tempo of the original and play it how you want! If you're struggling with any parts you can just play the chords go give you an idea, and slowly develop your picking. A capo will be required to stay in the original key if you want to play along to a recording, but otherwise it's optional. Overall very enjoyable, and you'll quickly be building up the speed of your picking.
