Hello.

I wanted to ask you about this way of playing.

This SOLOIST fingerstyle+jazz/country guitar that we can see on songs like:

(BRENT MASON-THE FIRST RULE OF THUMB)

(YOUVE GOT A FRIEND IN ME - SOLO FINGERSTYLE)

I would like to learn much more about this type of playing. I've seen artists doing similar things like Joe Pass or Scotty Anderson, but they're either very jazzy or they're very country. In these two songs that I exemplify there is a balance that I would love to master...

Could someone recommend more examples of similar songs or artists?

Many thanks in advance. :)

Not sure if he does enough country flavor for you but Johny A is a master at this kinda thing.

Might be worth your while to check out Damian Bacci on YouTube as well. He has lessons in rockabilly, country, and jazz standards. A lot of the stuff he plays with a pick, but they can be adapted to fingerstyle. He walks you through it in a fashion that lets you pick it up fairly quickly.

The things in his videos aren't as advanced as the examples you posted, but...it's Brent Mason. Gotta walk before you can run.

Good luck and have fun! I'm focusing on chord-melody playing myself and having a blast.
