Watch the Lesson 16 online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 5: Fingerstyle Approaches

Lesson 16 - Lesson Overview is a video guitar lesson presented by David Hamburger and is sourced from Fingerstyle Blues Handbook 2.


To many people, Chet Atkins is the fingerstyle guitarist. As a kid, Atkins got fired up by hearing Merle Travis, and essentially developed a more refined version of Travis' sound, using more fingers than Travis (who picked with just thumb and index finger). Finding recordings that are clearly just Chet playing alone is tricky; try looking someplace like iTunes, where you can audition each track to see what's going on. The site Funky Junk has lots of Chet and Chet-related music as well.
