I just finished the first blues course from Six String Fingerpicking and consistent with the other courses I’ve taken it was EXCELLENT! Chris teaches in a way that makes learning easy and fun. Over the years I’ve taken several of his classes and have purchased many tabs to go with his lessons. Six String Fingerpicking has become my single source for online instruction and tabs.

I just wanted to send along a heartfelt thank you. I have been playing guitar for 26 years (that's crazy to say) and I just completed the Fingerstyle Blues Vol 1 course. I don't know if I've felt the kind of massive growth spurt in my learning which I felt while taking this course since my early years of playing! It was well laid-out, easy to follow, adequately challenging but accessible, and left me with a ton of ideas. Thank you so much for creating it and for opening up a whole new world of playing for me!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you aren't required to complete one section before moving to the next. However, I strongly recommend that you follow the sequence set out in the course because it has been designed in a logical order to help you learn faster.

You simply need internet access and a guitar. The courses are not downloadable so you will need an internet connection good enough for streaming. All tabs are included as a downloadable pdf so you can work on these away from the computer if you choose.

No, purchasing a course does not include access to popular song tabs. Due to copyright the song lessons do not include tabs but there are links on the song lesson pages so you can buy the tabs separately, which ensures that the royalties are paid to the rights holders.
