Modern fingerstyle guitar is, quite possibly, the greatest extension of the instrument — an orchestral sound contained within one instrument. But there’s so many modern fingerstyle guitarists out there. Where do you begin?
On this episode of Acoustic Tuesday, you’ll hear about 15 modern fingerstyle guitarists you need to check out. From commercially successful artists to up-and-coming Youtubers, you’re going to see some incredible guitarists.
What I love about this style is that it pushes the guitar to new heights. It’s not just about mastery of the guitar. It’s about pushing the limits of what playing a guitar means.
From the percussion to the harmonics and sweep picking, there’s some incredible techniques to check out from all these guitarists. You’ll notice there is a percussive and rhythmic quality to all these guitars. That’s just part of the beauty of this style.
If you want to hear more of this style, be sure to check out all of the artists featured in this episode. There’s something for everyone, whether you’ve heard modern fingerstyle guitar before or not!
