Hey all,
I'm looking for some suggestions for acoustic fingerpicking guitarists that I can check out.

Years ago I played Classical guitar through the Royal Conservatory of music, and although im not interested in spanish guitar so much anymore (I still have my classical guitar here collecting dust), i'm very interested in starting to getting into Acoustic fingerpicking.

So, is there anyone I can download and listen to? and perhaps start learning from?

Much thanks.

Steven Stills: considered by many to be the best acoustic folk/blues player of the sixties and seventies, and still recording with CSN and solo.

Mark Knopfler

Mark Knopfler has done great things. There are some wonderful clips of him on youtube.

I found this Italian guy on youtube who plays a variety of fingerstyle songs, and breaks down Marbletown, which is a cool tune.

I like his explanation "you must hit and then shoot down the strings like in the classic Mark Knopfler style". :smile:

I think I will dig out some of my old Dire Straits albums today.
