Andy McKee Player Profile

Andy McKee: Player Profile

Andy Mckee is one of the most well-known modern fingerstyle guitar players in the world. Hailing from America, Andy’s fame has largely spread through his amazing YouTube videos (check out the example below, 55million views and counting!).

Originally coming from a metal and rock background, McKee fingerstyle acoustic work has hewed closer to folks like Michael Hedges and Antoine Dufour.

One of my personal favorites is his cover of “Everybody Wants to Rule The World”. So good.
