This introductory-level book provides an overview of fingerstyle techniques for the guitarist who may not be familiar with the classical/fingerstyle technique or who just wants to learn more. The first few chapters discuss some basic techniques and how to approach these techniques while developing good habits and correcting or avoiding the development of bad habits. The later sections focus on some basic repertoire from the classical and fingerstyle traditions and will implement the techniques learned in the previous chapters. Written in notation and tablature.
