Hello All.

Its been a while since I have posted on this forum. All part of getting old I am afraid! Been a member on this forum on and off since 2005. I have recently been getting back into my guitar. Going to a Noel Gallagher concert last week really inspired me to dust off the acoustic and start playing again. I have always been a player that can not get on with a plec. Always used my fingers.

I always really liked finger style playing and could master a few tunes like Brian Adams summer 69, fading out Radiohead and Pink floyd Is there any body out here.

I am now so rusty I am looking for some easier tunes or patterns to learn to get me back into the wing of things.
Can anybody recommend anything.

I found this geezer on Youtube who is in my opinion really good and again some inspiration for me. I know he may not be everyones cup of tea

Maybe some Tracy Chapman?

Work your way up to some Richard Thompson stuff

I remember doing Spadau Ballet - Through the Barricades as Fingerstyle and Vocals as a GCSE performance piece at school

Fingerstyle is probably what I'm best at when it comes to guitar playing, though I only noodle about with it nowadays

Welcome back! smile.gif If possible, try to join in some collabs to get some practice using this type of technique in some solos. As a bonus you'll get some great feedback!

Nice one on the Tracy Chapman. Learnt fast Car a bit to quickly! but brilliant. It all gets my fingers going again and hardens the skin back up as I am only playing my acoustic at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestion
