Chris replied to Jim Samuel's discussion Starting Over - With Essentials in the group Flatpicking Essentials
"I like finger style too, all sorts from Pierre Bensusan, Bert Jansch, Townz Van Zandt. Can you give me a song/ artist that inspires your fingerpicking, just so I know what artists and style you are talking about?"
