Fingerstyle Acoustic Cover I

Best Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar Channels on YouTube – Part I

There’s an amazing amount of great fingerstyle guitar players on YouTube.  Sometimes they inspire me, and sometimes they make me want to hang up my guitar and walk away.  But I have to say that, regardless of how I feel, crusing YouTube for great players is never boring.  And I always come away with a new tune I want to learn.

Part I – A Focus on Players

Part I of the “Best Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar Channels on YouTube” series focuses on big name players.  It’s calculated by sheer volume of views on an overall channel (versus on a given video) with some discretionary editing to account for taste.  The series will continue in the next weeks to include some more players, a list of record labels, and a final ‘best of’.
