Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members Fingerpicking 101 - This is our comprehensive primer on the techniques and concepts you need to get comfortable in the world of Fingerstyle Guitar. You only need to know a few basic, open chords to jump in. The lesson starts with proper hand position and how to strike the strings, takes you through arpeggio exercises and alternating bass styles, then completely debunks the myth that you need to master 1001 patterns. This is done by breaking out and explaining the components that go into creating fingerpicking accompaniments, rather than memorizing hundreds of unrelated pieces of information. Fingerpicking 101 will take the beginning student to the point where they will be ready to tackle hundreds of their favorite songs, many of which would seem out of reach before.

Not good publicity for Totally Guitars site if Problems experienced by many potential students are ignored and not remedied. What is the problem with Fingerpicking 101 package?written by maltcm59591, August 12, 2015
I purchased Finger Picking 101. Once received I had access to the videos for about a week. At present I cannot open any of the 8 videos. No matter which one of the videos I click on I get Neil'[s introductgory p;resentatio about options for different levels of TG lessons. I have been a student follower of Neil and TG for about three years. I now want to study the Finger Picking technique. I signed up,paid for the series, accessed it once, now I can't access it. I have written multiple (6-7) requests for help. I received one response instructig me to take certain steps. I did them. The problem persists and no further responses are for coming from the assistance desk. Neil, do you read these coments ???????written by marks3, January 11, 2015
