I can't rate this book highly enough. It picks up where the Contemporary Travis Picking leaves off, and takes you through more complex and intricate ideas. It isn't a beginners' book, so I'd recommend starting with Contemporary Travis Picking, but once you've got the basics under your belt, you'll want to move on to this book.

I bought it to use with a student. I've been playing guitar for more than 30 years now, and I don't mind telling you I learned a thing or two from it myself. It is very much a practical book, so light on music theory. If you're not strong on music theory, I'd recommend considering using the book with a tutor; that will give you a fuller understanding of what's going on. However, that said, there's no reason why a dedicated learner couldn't use it by him or herself.

If you choose to buy this book - and I hope you do - you'll need to work at it, especially the first few exercises. Take your time and get those right. But once you've broken through that wall, you will find you can do some pretty flashy things. When that happens, you'll have every right to feel very pleased with yourself. This really is a terrific book.

I practice for about 10mins every other day (ish). It demands full concentration .I never play the exercises like anyone would want to listen to...I can't even make out the tunes ! But; it's a great second book to increase your fingering skills. Highly recommended, especially if you're dedicated and want to improve. I'll stick with it as well as playing other stuff like "Crazy" and "Georgia on my mind". Nigel Eagle

If your new to finger style guitar picking as I am this book is a good place to start. The lay out takes the beginer from easy picking patterns through to more advanced pieces, while building up your skills along to way. The accompanying DVD also aids in letting the pupil learn from listening and playing along with the course as it progresses.
I would say even if you usually only play rhythm or see yourself as a rock guitarist, finger picking can expand your abilities and allow you to add colour and mood to most pieces you play, even on an electric guitar. So yes I highly recommend this, and other books by the same author.

Excellent book. This is the follow up Contemporary Travis Picking and that book needs to be learned first. These books are perfect for learning, no nursery rhymes or any of that stuff. I enjoy them, good fun and Mark Hanson is great to listen to.

Mark produces very good guitar tutors. The best ones for me are: 'The Art of Contemporary Travis Picking', 'The Art of Solo Fingerpicking' and 'Beyond Basics - Fingerstyle Guitar'.

A great book for guitarists interested in learning to play solos in country fingerstyle. Well worth the price, has enclosed CD and I won't need to buy another book for a year!
