Arlie Box. iPhone has a metronome app that I use. It's free. Should try it before you spend. I also use the metronome on Garage Band program. For what it's worth.

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!

I = Indice = Index finger

M = Medio = Middle finger

A = Anular = ring finger

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