Watch the Fingerstyle Revisionist: Adagio Songbook online guitar lesson by Adrian Legg from Fingerstyle Revisionist: Adagio Songbook

Hi, I'm Adrian Legg and welcome to The Adagio Songbook, the second installment of The Fingerstyle Revisionist series. This course extends the basic fingerstyle techniques we learned in The Fingerstyle Revisionist: Origins into actual melodic songs.

I remember early on in my guitar career, someone said to me, "Can you play a song?" At that point, I couldn't. It seems to me to be tremendously important that you can return something to the people, and one of the nicest things you can give them is a completed song.

In this collection, we'll be looking at tunes that vary from simple waltzes to complex, more developed ballads. Every tune is written in standard notation and tablature, broken down piece by piece and analyzed completely so that you can understand it.
