(From Basic Fingerstyle) “When you step into fingerstyle world as a beginner, it’s advisable to start by facing easy exercises and tunes. But instead, as a matter of fact, many students are facinated by challenging songs, in truth, more interesting from the musical point of view. As a teacher, I always suggest to start with songs suitable to build a solid base and from there on move the next steps. But I also found it difficult to find simple, pleasant and easy to play songs. Even harder it was finding the same kind of features in one book. So in order to even partially fulfill the expectations of my students and mine, I had to search out music notations and tablatures from many different publications. But varying symbols, missing fingerings, and lack of audio supports, persuaded me of the need to start working on this project: a basic collection of stimulating pieces for a first repertoire, capable of developing a satisfying fluency of execution, within a reasonable time, without a loss of enthusiasm.” (Franco Morone)
So this is how Basic Fingerstyle book was born. The tune “Le Meglio Storie con la Mia Chitarra” which is part of this repertoire, is performed at the annual Malosco’s workshop at the students concert as well as in other festivals and events related to the acoustic guitar. It is advisable to study it as it is very profitable. In the video that follows, Franco initially plays the whole song and afterwards he explains the technique. There is also a part of cross-picking even simpler and affordable for everybody. See you soon in the tutorial for this section. Let us have your comments on this video. Cheers!
