New Book Release: Roots and Blues Fingerstyle Guitar Explorations by Steve James

"These are the songs of people who make music, not because they've been trained to do so or because they think it will make them rich and famous, but simply because they want to hear some."

The latest collaboration between Acoustic Guitar and blues guitar expert Steve James is now available. Roots and Blues Fingerstyle Guitar Explorations is a comprehensive guitar method, songbook, and narrative anthology.

Explore fingerstyle country-blues and other rootsy styles. Both the book and digital edition contain 80 pages of written instruction, notation and tab, plus more than 55 minutes of accompanying video instruction for all music examples, performed by Steve James.

In his introduction to the book, Steve James says, “These are the songs of people who make music, not because they’ve been trained to do so or because they think it will make them rich and famous, but simply because they want to hear some.” Go behind the scenes with Steve James and learn more about the book and the great musicians who have influenced his playing in the video below.
