Hi. My name is Amanda Claire and I'm talking to you from Austin, Texas, for Expert Village, and I'm here to talk about fingerpicking in the country blues style, which is a kind of a traditional, American-style of guitar fingerpicking. I got into this gosh, maybe eight years ago, probably more, maybe almost ten years ago, when my friend, Michael Nivison, in New Mexico, started teaching me how to play songs by Mississippi John Hurt. And this is a style that has a lot of links to kind of a ragtime sound, early blues sound, swing sound, even kind of really early country sound also. And, so, I'm here to show you kind of the basics, fundamentals of this style. And it sounds sort of like this.
