5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely THE BEST fingerstyle book I've seen..., May 3, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Art of Solo Fingerpicking: How to Play Alternating-Bass Fingerstyle Guitar Solos (Guitar Books) (Paperback)
For me, this book/CD raised the bar for all guitar instruction. I'm actually a pretty decent fingerstyle player now, and it is because of this book. I still have a way to go, and I'm still only a little more than half way through, but this book has taken me SO FAR with my playing. The progression of exercises is very natural; don't move on until you feel comfortable with an exercise, and then come back to it once in a while.

Proceeding along, you get to the first actual "song", Red White and Blue Rag. I still play this one almost every time I pick up my guitar! The tab itself is the best I have EVER seen, with fingering notation in many places. The CD is a great inspiration, and the slow versions of the tunes are indispensable.

I found out about this book from a recommendation on the "Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum", with glowing words from a long line of very experienced players. I gambled and bought it, and I'm a much better player now because of it. Seriously, if you want to get better at fingerstyle playing, this is the book.
