In honor of Brooks Robertson’s Fingerstyle Survival Guide that was just released, we wanted to give you some extra practice to become masters of the fingerstyle technique.
Fingerstyle guitar can produce rich, deep arrangements since you’re able to simultaneously produce a melody, bass, and harmonic accompaniment. The twelve songs below are some of the most notable uses of fingerstyle technique, and follow patterns that can provide a solid foundation moving into more advanced pieces.
