There aren’t many better sounds in the world than a guitar being fingerpicked.
It could be a battered old Takamine, a brand spanking new Fender electro acoustic or a boutique Ramirez nylon classical.
It doesn`t matter what guitar you have, with fingerpicking you can take the most simple of chords and turn them into elegant, joyous, awe-inspiring pieces of music that will stun and delight your audience.
Fingerpicking the guitar can and will bring you many years and decades of fun, joy and expression to your life.
Fingerstyle guitar is an essential and often VERY overlooked part of guitar playing.
Yet, it is Fingerpicking that separates the awesome guitarist from the sloppy sounding amateur.

Reviews and reader feedback
5 stars – “Another fantastic book by Dan Thorpe. The book is well structured and clear. It ‘speaks’ to you almost as if Dan is in front of you giving you a lesson. Each chapter flows logically into the next with a good mix of easy to understand theory and practice exercises to reinforce the theory. The building blocks soon start to stack up and you get visible results. Can’t get enough of this author’s books – they’re great!.” – Anne (Amazon customer)
