This is a video of me playing the tune “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” by Tears For Fears. This arrangement was done by Andy McKee.. If you don’t know of him already, go check him out!
Please leave comments below and let me know what you think. Also, let me know if anyone is interested in learning more about how to play this style of guitar. I may create some lessons to teach some basic finger style techniques
You just demonstrated why I am learning to play guitar. It is a very versatile and beautiful sounding instrument. However, it is as difficult to learn to play as it is versatile, but very much worth the effort. You did a good job on that song. I like finger style as much as I do electric. Thanks for the inspiration.
Great Comment Darryl… The guitar is truly one of the most versatile instruments. I’ve found that it can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. While it is very time consuming to explore the more complex side of it, I’ve always found it well worth it as it opens the doors to new and exciting things to play
Keep playing and let me know if you have any questions with your playing
Would love to be able to play like that but my fingers will not cooperate :-)
Keep with it Sam and do the best you can!
Love this style!! It reminds me of covering Police tunes………..cool to play and then jam to!! Not bragging here Mike but I’d prefer acoustic songs like this level or higher to keep me challenged. I like stepping up a notch or two in my guitar playing!!
Thanks for the comment Jim! There’s not many levels higher than this… this sucker is hard to play, but well worth the effort!
