Acoustic Guitar Folk Music 
And Songs

Welcome to my acoustic guitar folk music page.

Learning folk songs on the acoustic is a great start for a beginner guitar player because many folk songs consist of three chords.

And even though fingerpicking is often associated with folk music, as you'll see in many of my demos, rhythm can be used instead, which is much simpler. Then at some point you can expand your skills and take on fingerpicking patterns.

As this is a new page I'll be adding jump links from this acoustic guitar folk music page directly to the artist location.
