Fingerpicking

Fingerpicking is, no doubt, a guitar picking technique. It is nonetheless a very refined and sophisticated one. The fingerpicking technique uses a continuously played baseline to "accompany itself" , making it seem to the untrained ear as if there are two guitars playing at the same time.

Compared to classical guitar, for example, the music loses a bit of its austere quality, yet the fingerpicking technique can lend itself beautifully even to classical works.

Since 1978 I have been using this technique to present my widely varied performances, on stage, at events or on CDs. Whatever the style may be: folk, swing or classical music, jazz, blues or country…
