I’ve been listening to Ben Howard’s excellent album ‘Every Kingdom‘ which is jam-packed full of beautiful songs.
The opening track ‘Old Pine’ is particularly lovely and I’ve been learning how to play it using a great tutorial by Gareth at Goliath Guitar Tutorials. On his website and YouTube Channel, you can find a selection of good quality guitar lessons that are well worth a look if you are into fingerstyle guitar.
