hello all,

as the title states I am in a search for more artists to listen and learn from. I am mostly interested in finger-style acoustic, since that is my primary study at the moment. I am a huge fan of Tommy Emmanuel, Don Ross, Alder, Andy Mckee(love this guy).

Does anyone know of any others?

I have a rather long commute back and forth from work and its a perfect time to sit back and listen.

thanks

KS

Hi KS,

I don't know the music style that you are looking for but here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fingerpicking there are a good set of names. And although he is not in the page, I think Paul Simon could be a possibility.

Oh, I don't know...... you sound pretty darned good to me.

As I type this I'm listening to a tune called "Scotch Mist" which I believe is by the esteemed Fingerstylist "McFretsource" and it sounds top notch. A touch of the 'Greensleeves' about it.

I seem to recall also enjoying "Snowdrop" (???) was it?

Cheers,

Chris

after looking over some, many are country. Is that normal?? Cause for the most part I really don't adhere to that genre too well. On the flip side, although I am an Andy Mckee fan, I think that many of these percussion players over do it. I prefer the more melodic.

I find Chris Smither to be an excellent fingerpicker. I ws at a festival once where Richard Thompson was onstage doing an acoustic number and I kept looking for the other guitars, but there weren't any, check him out.
