There has never been a collection of fingerstyle repertoire like this one.

This truly one-of-a-kind book covers an expansive and eclectic variety of styles and techniques, including modern innovations like percussive gestures and two hands on the fingerboard. Over 50 artists are featured, each represented by a single, characteristic piece. All songs are shown in standard notation and tab and include special historical and performance notes, making this book an incredibly valuable tool for any student of fingerstyle guitar.
