I started learning "Landslide" a little bit ago - capo 3rd fret - very nice fingerstyle tune...
"Dust in the Wind" was my first fingerpicking song - in 1981...alas...where did the time go?
Thanks, Phil. I've been working on learning a couple of fingerstyle songs - Dust in the Wind and Stevie Nicks' Landslide. I'm also interested in fingerstyle blues. I'll have a look at the resources you mentioned.
@Mark, now the Homespun site has a lot of fingerstyle type instructional material. Since fingerstyle encompasses a wide variety of music styles, which style are you most interested? I love the styles 'fathered' by the Rev. Gary Davis, and carried on by so many from the sixties. Jorma Kaukonen, Ernie Hawkins, Stefan Grossman, and Dave Van Ronk are a few that have some really good teaching resources available. Currently, the one I visit most often is Jorma's "BreakDownWay", which has Jorma and others showing how they play a selction of tunes. The site is not a beginner site, but I think you can always get something out of listening and watching a more experienced player. The vids are available seperately for a reasonable price. There are no tabs, but I find most of the vids have good coverage and explaination of what is being done.
I found a lot of good tips and pointers on youtube, just search for your favorite artist and add the word 'tutorial', you'll get a lot of hits to explore.
Hello, everyone. I'm new here, and a relative newbie at fingerstyle; what little I know about it is self-taught. I'd like to get better, and I've thought about trying to find a good fingerstyle teacher in my area (Phoenix, AZ) but haven't had much success so far. Does anyone know of a good resource for finding fingerstyle teachers or, failing that, a good self-help program?
Great piece there Nic, enjoyed the arrangement very much, thanks for sharing it on such a special day.
Happy Easter everyone. Here's my latest arrangement of "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" to celebrate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zi_2PDcZ0NU.
Sharon, glad you like it! I plan to add more in the near future. Let me know how the new piece you're working on turns out.
Nice piece Nic. Thanks for sharing. You've inspired me to learn a new piece!
Hi folks, I'll be doing a webcast featuring my guest Eric Skye - a fantastic fingerstyle jazz player this coming Thursday, March 29 (2012) at 7:30 PM Pacific time. The show will run approximately 45 minutes, with Eric and I trading tunes, perhaps playing a bit together. Sort of a virtual house concert right on your computer. The show is hosted by StageIt.com, who do require that we charge a bit, but we've set it as a "pay what you can" show, which means 10 cents gets you in! You do have to register with StageIt and buy $5 worth of tokens - their minimum, but you can use the extra tokens for other shows. Lots to choose from, Stevie Coyle's been doing them regularly, Pete Huttlinger has one coming up, and I'll be doing more, with other guests, as well.If you want to stop by and say hello in the chat room, or just heckle, come check it out. The direct link to the show is:http://www.stageit.com/doug_young_and_eric_skye/acoustic_guitar_for... or go to StageIt.com and search for my name or Eric's name.
