The term 'fingerstyle' denotes the use of thumb and two or three fingers of the picking hand to play beautiful melodies and rich accompaniment to everything from folk repertoire to new and inventive compositions. Players in this style use moving bass lines, sharply delineated melodies, percussive techniques and complex harmonies to achieve their compelling sounds. This overview of fingerstyle repertoire and technique will immerse you in the work of eight cutting-edge guitarists who are redefining contemporary guitar music. They will give you much to work on.
