Fingerstyle guitar is extremely popular today. This is because it lends itself to very personal and lyrical solo and accompaniment styles. This method is one of the very best at teaching the basics of fingerpicking. Written by Nashville's fine guitarist, Tommy Flint, you will learn chording, Travis picking, soloing, scales and accompaniment patterns, playing over the entire fingerboard, barre-chords, two-string harmony, combining hammer and slide, three-against four roll, contrary motion, crosspicking, harmonics, right and left hand agility studies, and much more. A bonus is the inclusion of over 50 great, original Tommy Flint fingerpicking guitar solos which reflect a rich diversity of styles. This volume includes material previously published in two volumes as Mel Bay's Deluxe Fingerstyle Guitar Method. Written in notation and tablature.
This package includes a split-track CD which provides play-along demonstrations of many of the exercises and solos in the book, starting with page 41. The solo guitar is on the right with accompaniment guitar on the left, so you can eliminate the solo part or accompaniment by adjusting the balance control of your player.
