Hi Everyone. Happy Hoildays. I just found this link to some fine Chet Atkins links that are way over my head. Ha Ha. Enjoy. If you know of any other Fingerstyle tab sites, please let me know what they are. Thanks!

Yeah mine get tongue tied "a lot" too, and so do my left fingers too.

Arlie, great PDF by the way!

A bunch of exercises plus you have to make yourself read the actual sheet notes which helps learn the notes on the fretboard if one works through it slowly at first.


PS: Pular, Indice, Medio, Anular = Spanish

Yep Arlie you're right:

P = Pulgar = Thumb

I = Indice = Index finger

M = Medio = Middle finger

A = Anular = ring finger

Anyone here have any experience with, or ever heard of, Trinity College guitars - TG10, TG20, etc.? Just read about them last night on Internet - supposed to be designed for fingerstyle - 12 fretters...

David C,


Enjoyed your video of your Martin 0-18. Good job on the song and picking, that beauty has some great tone!


Well done.

Flashback to all the conversations on "Nail Care".  I was reading the September Issue of "Acoustic" magazine and saw a small news blurb there touting tutorial videos for nail care by Amazing Nails.  They suggest checking out fingernail video clips on YouTube from

My mother gave the 0-18 to my older sister, don't know when, and she played it for I don't know how long.  Somehow it got its sides cracked, and the neck moved, and it went into a closet.  When my sister died it went to her daughter, my niece.  First I ever knew of it was when my niece asked for advice about selling it.  When I realized what it was, I bought it myself and got it beautifully restored by Michi Matsuda at Gryphon Strings.  It's hard to believe I own such a thing.

David (Casseres) I watched your video and really enjoyed it. I also very much enjoyed checking out that 1927 Martin 0-18. Where'd you get that little beauty? I have a 1999 D-42 ... not quite the same, haw. :)
