Finger picking technique

With just a little searching, you can find more than a handful of blogs about learning and playing guitar. Here I’ll give you just one handful of some of the best that includes several different styles of guitar playing – from classic to fingerstyle to blues.

You can learn a lot from each of these guitar bloggers. Some of them have full-blown courses and online communities. Some offer advice on guitar gear, life, and more.
