In Gospel Songs for Fingerstyle Guitar, virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and clawhammer banjoist Steve Baughman shares a rich collection of 17 hymns and gospel songs, in a variety of tunings, arranged for solo guitar. Regardless of religious affiliation, Baughman’s refreshing approach to these timeless songs will provide an enjoyable challenge to intermediate-to-advanced guitarists seeking to expand their fingerstyle repertoire. Each selection includes tuning info, background information, technical tips, and humorous asides, as well as access to in-depth instructional videos performed by the author.
