    That’s some pretty amazing guitar playing @Marty69 . I’m sure it’s far better than what you could do before you joined TAC. It’s the improvement that’s important. (I don’t know if I will ever get that fast at picking.) Thanks for posting.

      Thank you @MikeGaurnier & no, I couldn’t finger pick a lick before TAC. I just did his courses and things started to fall into place. I am now on Year 4 with TAC. Still learning and playing. Just gettin’ a little bit better every day. 😊🧙‍♂️😎

        Yeah, I am coming up on 2 years @Marty69 , and my realization of how long it takes continues expanding. Eventually, I’ll finally crush the expectations altogether. So even though I keep adding time to the “how long will it take?” equation, I continue to grow in fun and satisfaction as the expectations shrink smaller. The payoff is playing like you did in this video. I love the inspiration.

      Thank you @Bill_Brown before TAC, I couldn’t finger pick at all. But now, I am using patters and my own finger picking technique I am developing. Tony did tell us to “create your own style of playing”. I am trying. 😊🧙‍♂️😎

    Wow! That is a great performance. I didn’t start finger picking until TAC either. I am just a beginner with a little over a year; but this is inspiring to keep going and improving. Wonderful!

      Yes it is! And I learned that I was doing a form of “claw” playing like Tony showed on the last Acoustic Tue. show. I am also developing my own way of playing too. 😊😎

    WOW! Great job with Classical Gas! I tried to play it and got 2 seconds in and quit. You make it look easy.

      Thank you. It’s a song I always wanted to learn. It surprised me that I could play it! Before TAC, I couldn’t have done it. That’s why I became a TAC Life Member. 😊😎

    Very impressive Marty. I am about a year and a half into TAC and finger picking is still a challenge. Seeing this gives me inspiration to keep learning and trying. Thanks!

      Thank you @Paul M Keep at it!!! I did the finger picking lessons over and over when I join TAC, I had very little picking experience. 🧐🧙‍♂️😎

    Loved your post on Classical Gas! Excellent consistent finger picking! An inspiration to me as I have been trying to improve my finger picking skills/patterns this past year.

    Thanks for sharing

    Love it Marty! That’s what I hope to be able to do one day. With TAC, it will happen!
