Learn something from others, like James Taylor.  All guitarists have a style and James Taylor's style is fingerpicking with chords using embellishment techniques like hammering on, see for yourself in this lesson from James Taylor (note: he modifies A & D to meet his needs) ~ now you can say you learned something  from James Taylor!Play on...Marlene  P.S.

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly. I am amazed at how cleanly both bindings look.  Some finish touch up will be required, but the overall appearance is more than…
