Simply picking with your fingers doesn't make you a fingerstyle player. There's more to it than that. Join acclaimed fingerstyle guitarist Doyle Dykes and learn to take advantage of every finger on your picking hand. In addition to walking you through his repertoire of trademark techniques, Doyle will show you how to create melodies, independently moving bass lines, and inner voices simultaneously. Doyle will also cover Chet Atkins-, Merle Travis-, and Jerry Reed-style fingerpicking.

"Doyle Dykes is one of the most convincing cross-genre finger-stylists today. He successfully metes out Jazz, Latin, Gospel, Hawaiian, and Country arrangements from his nylon and steel-string guitars with equal grace and aplomb. But grace is only one facet of Doyle's talents. He also brings an incredible virility and indefatigable fire to his music, which makes listening to his arrangements an exhausting but satisfying experience." Jon Chappell, Editor-in-Chief, Guitar Magazine.
