Whatever you want, get ready to have a whole bunch of fun in the Acoustic Guitar Workshop. And here's an important point to realise: whatever style of playing you like - blues, jazz, classical, folk - there is a common ground of techniques applicable to all forms of fingerstyle.

For example, when you master the art of arpeggiating, you can apply this to an acoustic rock song, or a cool piece of Spanish guitar. It's handy to put labels on music, but the underlying techniques you use to express the music with your guitar are remarkably similar.
